Man fined for riding go-kart on streets of Shanghai

A man was fined 1,000 yuan (about 145 U.S. dollars) for riding a go-kart on the streets of Shanghai. The man, who was only identified by his surname Ye, was seen riding the go-kart on June 23 in Baoshan District. The video posted online went viral and caught the attention of police as go-karts are classified as banned vehicles and are not allowed on public roads. Police have emphasized that personal transporters like segways, e-scooters, and mobility devices for elderly people are prohibited on the streets in Shanghai. They are only allowed on pathways in closed compounds or indoors.
