11th May 2019 – (Hong Kong) A street sweeper truck owned by Food and Environmental Hygiene Department was issued a parking ticket by police officers on Tai Tong Road in Yuen Long yesterday. He apparently parked the vehicle in the no parking zone and a police officer on duty issued a ticket.

When the driver returned to his vehicle and saw the ticket, he immediately called officials from FEHD who subsequently arrived to confront the police officers who were still patrolling around the area.

It seems like there is no special privilege accorded to inter-government agencies if their staff are caught flouting the law.
