Let's all help keep unique street culture

I refer to your editorial ("Greed is killing best of old HK", April 23).

You talk of luxury mall operators, developers and landlords destroying what makes our city unique and interesting.

I write to echo the views of Paul M. F. Cheng ("We badly need anti-monopoly legislation", April 24). He is right to lament that Hong Kong has never had a level playing field. Like the colonial regime, the SAR government continues to promote policies that have enabled a few families to control the livelihood of the majority, from real estate and electricity to telecommunications and food supplies.

Kai Tak River has so much potential. Photo: K.Y. Cheng

Every day I look out of my window at Kai Tak and think about the great potential the area has and how it can dramatically improve the lives of people across Hong Kong. It is a large, flat and square area that should become an oasis within busy Hong Kong. It has all the potential to become a landmark like New York's Central Park or London's Canary Wharf (should be even better). If done right, it will become a point of pride for the people of Hong Kong.

A proven way to cut road deaths

Taxi drivers on average commit speeding offences 51 times more often than bus drivers and eight times more often than minibus drivers.

Value-for-money reports by the Audit Commission measure the performance of government departments and public bodies against objectives. This can help prompt action by officials to meet public expectations. The latest report raises questions about road safety - in particular speeding and drink-driving. It found that taxi drivers on average commit speeding offences 51 times more often than bus drivers and eight times more often than minibus drivers.
