>Price hikes of safety helmets
The Ministry of Public Security said Wednesday it was concerned about price hikes on safety helmets sold by some enterprises and e-commerce platforms for motorcycles and electric bikes.
The ministry said it has instructed public security organs nationwide to coordinate with market regulators to crack down on price gouging and other violations.
The move came after the ministry launched a campaign requiring motorcycle and electric bike riders to wear a safety helmet while motorists and passengers are compelled to wear seat belts.
Starting from June 1, riding motorcycles without a helmet and driving or riding in cars without wearing a seat belt will be punishable.
Sharp increases in helmet prices were reported in some e-commerce platforms as demand surged.

US President Donald Trump is the screaming cover star of Time's new issue that explores his mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic and his push to reopen the economy against the advice of public health experts.
Artist Edel Rodriguez depicted the president as yelling - with a Stars and Stripes mask on his face, but not over his mouth - to illustrate the cover for the magazine's May 25 edition.
"There's a right way to reopen America. This isn't it," reads the headline.
The magazine's cover story breaks down the Trump government's fumbled response to the public health crisis. It also explains how the US "risks making matters worse" as dozens of states prepare to ease lockdown restrictions aimed at slowing the spread of the contagion.
More than 90,000 people in the US have now died from the virus.
