    If HK roads weren't crammed enough, some dim wit in the gov is planning on allowing Mainland cars drive in HK and doing in Phases.

    If you think that the pushing and shoving in Ocean Park / Disney is bad.. wait till these drivers hit the street.

    Great....they should make the mainland drivers take a intensive driving test before they get issued a permit before allow to drive in HK. I wonder how long before the first fatal accident involving a mainland driver occur!

    Sounds like fun. Not.

    And this:

    The government needs to carefully work out the details of this trial scheme. Wang suggests two ways to make the scheme work better in case it goes forward. First, the government may not need to issue as many permits as Guangdong because Hong Kong is a much smaller city, and giving out too many permits could obviously paralyze the transport network. Hong Kong could also initiate a “Park & Ride” system, which has already been adopted in London and other cities. When mainland drivers cross the border, they would have to park their cars in designated spots near major transport transition points and then use public transport to travel to urban areas.
    Uh, great idea, but then why not keep the P&R carparks on the mainland side and thus the moron drivers out completely?

    Often seeing drivers in the mainland drive of the left side of the road to avoid making a u-turn, I guess they won't have any problem in HK adapting to the fact that we drive on the left side of the road....

    This is a really, really, really bad idea.

    There will also be a nice trade in petrol smuggling -

    Cheap low quality high sulphur mainland fuel syphoned out into the scrap yards of Shek Kong to be resold on the black market i HK.

    As if HK's road side pollution was not bad enough!

    Well HK cars are allowed to drive on the mainland. So its probably right to allow it the other way as well.

    The cars you see on the road here with two licence plates are all HK registered with permission to drive in the mainland.

    It already happens the other way. With a similar set up to that which allows HK cars to drive in China. What this article is talking about is private cars.

    there are plenty of private cars with cross border plates. i think this 'scheme' is for all the government officials and their buddies to visit their second wifes in shenzhen / macau / hong kong.
