Hong Kong Automobile Association

Importing vehicles is a taxing issue

You've just moved to Hong Kong and are wondering whether to import your trusty little Corolla from your home country or buy a new one here?

Footdown

The Hong Kong Automobile Association (www.hkaa.com.hk) has given its 15-vehicle roadside fleet a new look, says committee member Ian Foster, who devised the design. 'The aim is to make them more recognisable and to be mobile advertisements for HKAA!' says the Irish architect.

Happy New Year. Simon Barlow's newly renovated 1959 '1500' MGA Roadster (below right) was the star attraction of the MG Car Club of Hong Hong's pre-Christmas barbecue, says its membership secretary, Bob Whitehead.

Who you gonna call?

THE LANTAU POLICE enforce a strict 8am curfew on Tung Chung Road and, in the rush to beat it, I haven't stopped for petrol in Pui O. Now, 25km later, the MX-5's fuel gauge points to 'E'. I'm glad I'm on my own - the Tsing Ma Bridge isn't the best stop in the rain.

Footdown

The Hong Kong Automobile Association celebrated 88 years of roadside service on September 10 with an open day at the Clearwater Bay Golf and Country Club.

Commendable

I read Kendy Chan's letter headlined, 'Public will lose out if association folds' (South China Morning Post, May 28) with dismay.

It is true that the Hong Kong Automobile Association (HKAA) is doing a very commendable job. It has served a very useful purpose in Hong Kong. Hong Kong would not be the same without the HKAA.

Efficient and courteous

The Hong Kong Automobile Association deserves support. Kendy Chan (South China Morning Post, May 28) did not exaggerate in detailing its services.

He did, however, fail to highlight just how grateful one is on the few occasions over the years when one needs to call on them.

Public will lose out if association folds

The Hong Kong Automobile Association (HKAA), after serving the community for 79 years, faces an uncertain future.

This non-profit-making, community-service organisation is under threat, because of rapidly increasing rental rates charged by the Lands Department.

Comments not endorsement of ERP

I NOTED from the letter published in the South China Morning Post on January 9, that Transport Secretary Mr Haider Barma was 'glad to note that the Motor Traders Association and the Hong Kong Automobile Association supported Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) in principle . . . '.

Breath tests

WITH reference to the article 'Killer Drink' on drinking and driving (Sunday Morning Post, September 4), I would like to clarify a mistaken impression I may have inadvertently given the writer.

The Hong Kong Automobile Association is not against testing, be it breath, urine or blood, for people suspected of drink-driving.
