All motorcycles are now banned.
According to The Seattle Times, the solution imposed by the city government goes into effect January 1 of next year. All 260,000 motorcycles in the city are to be off the roads.
This is a tough break for cycle riders in Guangzhou, especially if they depended on their motorcycle to make a living.
The reason for a tough ban? City leaders blame motorcycles for the increasing number of traffic accidents and thickening air pollution.
Some residents suspect that the ban might be a heavy-handed way to encourage more car sales. Car sales are growing in China, thanks to a booming economy.
