All Scooter Riders Require Helmets from June 1

Gone are the reckless days of weaving in and out of traffic with the wind blowing through your luscious hair. Starting from June 1, new traffic policy will require all electric scooter riders in China to wear a helmet.

机车男孩女孩们一头秀发随风飘的好日子可能要结束了。从6月1号起新交规要求骑行时需要戴头盔。

helmet

Although motorcyclists are already required to wear helmets in China, e-bike riders haven’t had the same policy applied.

“一盔”执法处罚的范围限定为骑乘摩托车不佩戴安全头盔的交通违法行为。对骑乘电动自行车,目前尚未强制要求要佩戴安全头盔。

If you’re en e-bike rider, then you’re probably aware of the tighter scooter regulations that have been taking place in the past few years. Which already includes stricter traffic laws and proper registration and licensing for e-bikes.

With news blowing in the wind, helmet prices are expected to soar and have already increased over 100% since April. So, you might want to get on Taobao today and order your scooter helmet.

近年来对电动车的规定包括拍照等也越来越严。头盔预计也会涨价,需要的朋友可以提前准备。

Although there is no national standard for electric scooter helmet safety; and you’d likely get away with wearing a horse riding helmet – we highly recommend that you buy a heavy duty helmet from a registered or reputable outlet.

虽然目前对电动自行车还没有硬性要求,但未来很可能也需要佩戴头盔。

A Special Date For 520

520

wǒ ài nǐ

5.20, May the 20th. For most of us it’s just another “normal” day, but for others, especially in China (and especially for those in a loving relationship) it holds a lot of meaning. 520 is a Chinese love word and a celebration of love, much like Valentine’s day.

5月20日在中国被赋予特殊的意义,象征着爱情。

But why 5.20?

The answer is simple. The pronunciation of the numbers in the date May the 20th (5.20) in Mandarin is 五二零 (wǔ èr líng), which sounds quite similar to我爱你 (wǒ ài nǐ). In case your Chinese level is HSK -1, wǒ ài nǐ translates to ‘I Love You’ in English.

为什么是这一天呢?因为520在中文发音里谐音“我爱你”。

Perhaps not quite the mythical Chinese love story you were hoping for, but who needs a romantic story to celebrate love, eh? All you need is three magic numbers and a special date planned!

Wait! You do have a special date planned, don’t you?!

谁管这些啊,我只需要有一个特别的约会。
