|'Corruption on wheels' still rampant
Even when faced with the risk of being removed from their posts, some officials are still treating government cars as their own.
The Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee issued a package of rules in December of last year requiring officials to refrain from excessive spending of public money, including misuse of government-funded cars. Violators could have their behavior exposed to the public, be removed from their posts, or even fired.
The CPC disciplinary watchdog has strengthened official and media supervision and has even adopted GPS technology to curb rampant abuse of these vehicles.
