Tonight I watched an interesting news. Since some people ignore the traffic rules and they go across the road even if there is the red light. Due to it, Hong Kong government decided to punish these people seriously. So if you don't follow the rules to go across the road, then you will be fined for HKD2000 which is about USD257

In fact the punishment fee will be much more expensive in Singapore.

@TiarasOceanView Oh, don't take a risk to try as it can be costly. I have a friend who travelled to your country in the past. Since it is prohibited to smoke indoor, therefore, he dared not to smoke anywhere in case of making any mistakes. After he was back from the trip, he quit smoking

A wise move on the part of the Hong Kong government. Hopefully fewer accidents will occur if a fine for ignoring the red light is given to those who do.
