Guangzhou Government Saves with Car-Tracking Scheme
The Guangzhou government has saved 40 million yuan ($6.5 million) per year over government vehicles after the city installed satellite positioning system and electronic identification system on the vehicles, the Xinhua News Agency reported on Monday.
The mileage of these vehicles has dropped 45 percent, and no cases of private use of government cars have been reported over the past two months, according to Mei Heqing, spokesman of Guangzhou Municipal Commission for Discipline Inspection.
