The idea is included in a paper on improving driving conduct submitted to the Legislative Council by the Environment, Transport and Works Bureau.

Q What do you think of the Central Christmas tree?

The Christmas Wishing Tree is certainly attracting a lot of attention. It is indeed brash, gaudy and vulgar. But any doubt as to whether it is appropriate for Hong Kong can be removed by simply taking a close look at it.

Nasty and extremely dangerous games

I was very interested to read Diana Campion's letter headlined 'Close shave on dangerous road' (Sunday Morning Post, May 20) about her experience of 'boy racers' on Repulse Bay Road. I have had a similarly disturbing, if not seemingly as life-threatening, encounter with them.

Strengthened hi-tech surveillance is set to catch tailgating drivers, police warned yesterday.

Roadside teams with laser guns will track motorists who drive almost bumper to bumper with the vehicle in front, often at high speed.

Stamp out driving menaces

I must say how happy I am to see so many speed traps deployed throughout Hong Kong in an attempt to make the roads safer for all.

However, I wonder why some of these resources are not used to combat other dangerous pursuits.
