10th May 2019 – (Hong Kong) Police have recently amended their internal guidelines to allow traffic summons to be issued every 30 minutes instead of 2 hours as before. If you park illegally at the no-parking zone for 2 hours, you may be fined for HK$1,280 (HK$320 per parking ticket). In the past, there was a cap of 4 parking tickets issued per vehicle. After the new amendment, car owner may receive unlimited number of parking tickets within a single day.
The new amendment will also allow police officers to exercise their discretion to tow away a vehicle which obstructs traffic after 2 parking tickets are issued.
Police will not announce to the public the commencement of the new guidelines. They will take effect immediately when the amendments are completed.
