The public facilities on 350 streets in Beijing will have QR codes by the end of 2017, and the QR codes are expected to cover all public facilities on major streets within the Fifth Ring Road of Beijing by the end of 2018, according to Beijing Municipal Bureau of City Administration and Law Enforcement.
The common public facilities on streets mainly include postal newsstands, breakfast kiosks, bus stops, street lights and telecom base stations. However, in daily life, those facilities are often reported with many problems like pedestrian sidewalks being occupied, the messy and dirty environment and advertisements found everywhere at bus stops.
Therefore, in 2017 Beijing Municipal Bureau of City Administration and Law Enforcement has made a special law enforcement program for the public space and facilities on streets in Beijing. It focuses on strengthening the inspections of large public facilities like postal newsstands and breakfast kiosks and strictly prohibits illegal businesses like roadside stall businesses.
At present, the city has carried out more than 1,800 joint law enforcement actions, with 1,569 issues managed, 1,981 cases placed on files and a fine of over 306,000 yuan ($45,545).
