I refer to the letter from Mr Will Lai, concerning the investigation progress regarding an incident on April 21 on the Kwun Tong Bypass (“What action did Hong Kong police take against Kwun Tong road rage pair?”, May 30).

After the incident, the police immediately started their investigation and identified the two drivers on April 21 and April 23. They were arrested for the offences of fighting in a public place and careless driving. The case is still being processed and both of the arrested persons are on police bail.

Public safety, including road safety, is one of the commissioner’s operational priorities, and we will investigate all such reported incidents with the overall aim of improving road safety.

We welcome members of the public to report any emergency or suspected traffic offence for our investigation. They may do so by calling 999, or calling or making a report to the nearest police station or regional traffic report room.

The address and telephone numbers can be found on the Police Public Page.
