    From the government's own FAQ, linked below.
    Note that the FAQ relates to regulation 599i, and not the latest regulation 599f. But I can't find any redefinition on what vehilces constitute private space within the full text of 599f.

    Is private vehicle a public place and whether the driver and passenger therein are subject to the mandatory mask-wearing requirement?
    Generally speaking, private vehicles for personal use, if they are not available for hire by the general public and a person may not gain access to the vehicle for the time being as a member of the public, are not regarded as public place where wearing masks is required under the Regulation. In any case, drivers and passengers should wear masks as far as possible for prevention of the spread of disease.

    Most of the illegally parked cars you see are not ticketed but it doesn’t mean police don’t ticket.
    Yes, but do you know anyone (or of any cases) of runners/exercisers getting tickets?

    Note how they say vehicles, so that would include bicycles and tricycles.

    There certainly is rule of law in HK. Perhaps even too much so. There are far too many regulations for silly things like playing with a beach ball at the beach or riding on the sidewalk for 5-10m where bike lanes pause...

    Please don’t throw a brick at me for believing so.
