Adjust font size:

Two helicopters will assist ground traffic police in the supervision of freeways in the southern province of Guangdong.

Guangdong Provincial Public Security Bureau launched a 10-day campaign on Wednesday to intensify traffic regulations and crack down on traffic violations, according to the Guangdong-based Information Times.

More than 2,000 police officers, two police helicopters equipped with digital video cameras and monitoring facilities and some 600 police vans will jointly patrol over 3,300 kilometers of freeways across the province in an effort to improve road safety, it said.

Guangdong used police helicopters to supervise traffic during the traditional Chinese Lunar New Year in January, the first of its kind in China.
