How should we view the incident where a 22-year-old female teacher was fatally struck by a septuagenarian driving an "elderly joyride" (a type of low-speed electric vehicle)? How should "elderly joyrides" be regulated?

According to Urban Channel’s report, on December 18th, in Nanyang, Henan, a 22-year-old female teacher named Xiaochan, who had just been working for a year, tragically lost her life in a traffic accident on November 20th due to a simple grocery shopping trip. Xiaochan’s aunt mentioned that her niece’s passing was sudden, stating, “There was a significant hole in her head, and her nose and mouth were covered in blood.” Xiaochan’s father told reporters, “It feels like our world has collapsed. I still think of my daughter as if she’s alive.” Xiaochan was struck by an “elderly joyride” and was dragged several meters because the vehicle did not come to a stop. Ultimately, the chassis beam of the vehicle pressed against Xiaochan’s head. A 22-year-old female teacher was fatally struck by a septuagenarian driving an “elderly joyride.” The family hasn’t received an apology, and we can’t find the person responsible. The elderly man’s daughter stated, “I haven’t contacted him because there’s no issue.” Father: Riding a bike while answering the phone resulted in the collision with the elderly man! The man broke down, shouting, “Who told you to call me?” Countdown to Exit: Does the “elderly joyride” manufacturer have any way out? Electric Vehicles, Production, Automobiles.

As the demand for a severe crackdown on “Laotou Le” (older adults' mobility vehicles) grows increasingly serious in society, people say that scientific management is needed. Licenses, insurance, and registration should be required, and only those who violate the regulations should be targeted, not a blanket ban.

After the law enforcement department initiated a severe crackdown, a scene emerged where several traffic police surrounded a “Laotou Le”, and the image of an elderly father or mother, either with grey hair or a weathered face, appeared in the driver’s seat. Videos were taken and shared on TikTok, stirring public sentiment.

Public opinion shifted again. We are all struggling hard to live. Don’t the elderly have the right to travel? Should they deserve to be exposed to wind and rain when they go out? It’s unfair to blame them. Why couldn’t their parents afford to buy them a Rolls-Royce?

“Laotou Le” can only be registered if it is listed in the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology directory. Unfortunately, most of the low-speed four-wheelers on the road don’t qualify for registration.

The process stops right at the first step.

So why aren’t the manufacturers being sanctioned?

What sanctions? They argue that these vehicles are designed for various purposes, such as sightseeing or internal road scenic vehicles.

If you buy one for public roads, the responsibility is immediately shifted away. And this is a huge industrial chain.

I remember in a certain province and city, the elderly mobility vehicle is the pillar industry, with more than half of the country’s production concentrated there. They are significant taxpayers and locally protected, so how could they possibly be banned?

They are produced, but they cannot be registered, leaving consumers who have spent money in a dilemma.

See, where does the problem lie?

Moreover, if these vehicles were indeed manufactured according to the standards set by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology that allow registration, many companies might go bankrupt directly, or the costs would skyrocket. Moreover, if registration means needing a driver’s license, then “Laotou Le” would no longer bring joy to the elderly.

Let’s reconsider the main reasons for the popularity of “Laotou Le”.

That’s because they don’t require a license, they provide shelter from wind and rain, and they can share the road resources with motor vehicles without mandatory insurance, mandatory annual inspections, or the risk of being caught for violations.

Start with the production first.

Get them registered, that’s the basic.

In some places, the number plates on these elderly mobility vehicles are the same as those on electric bikes and tricycles, which is almost equivalent to none. These plates are very easy to forge, and many of them have no registration information, essentially just a piece of metal with numbers, and these non-standard plates can’t be recognized by electronic police systems. Some local systems can recognize them, but once the vehicle leaves the local area, other places' electronic police systems can’t capture them, rendering them useless.

If registration cannot be resolved, then make it like motor vehicles, enforce insurance, and ensure that every vehicle sold is insured, no matter who drives it. This way, if an accident happens, there will be compensation for the other party.

In the news about this incident, there was a hit-and-run accident, and someone died. The traffic police determined full responsibility, and it’s definitely a criminal case. But after the traffic police determined the responsibility and handled the case, whether the person is detained or not is not up to the traffic police. The person is over 70, and his daughter claimed he has high blood pressure and poor health, so it might not be approved by the legal system, or even if it was approved, if a health check found abnormalities making him unsuitable for detention, it wouldn’t be executed. The case would be organized by the public security and sent to the prosecutor’s office, and the prosecutor’s office would initiate the prosecution. The arrest would also be approved by the prosecutor’s office. In the video, the traffic police asked the family to meet with the judge, which probably means the prosecutor’s office has communicated the case with the court. So, wait.

It’s amazing how the elderly are treated. In our jurisdiction, there was an old man who planted several poppies in his yard. If it were someone else, they would have been imprisoned long ago, but in the end, detention was not executed, and he was only fined 500 yuan.


“Laotou Le” (senior mobility scooters), a sobbing family.

These mobility scooters, known as “three-no vehicles” — no registration, no driver’s license, no insurance required — are favored by the elderly in many remote areas.

Just think about how dangerous these “Laotou Le” vehicles are and the significant hidden dangers they pose to society, yet they are repeatedly banned with little effect. To be honest, not having a driver’s license means not having gone through systematic learning.

In such cases, lacking even the most basic understanding of traffic rules, one cannot expect their driving skills to be any good.

Furthermore, those who drive these “Laotou Le” vehicles are generally older. To some extent, their reactions are slower than younger people. Therefore, the probability of traffic accidents is quite high.

Many say that these “Laotou Le” vehicles are a blessing for the elderly, like timely rain after a long drought. However, for families who have been hit and suffered accidents caused by these vehicles, the children suffer tragically, and the family endures great pain.

According to City Channel reports, on December 18, in Nanyang, Henan, a 22-year-old female teacher named Xiaochan, who had been working for just a year and had been excellent in both character and learning since childhood, had her life forever halted by a traffic accident on November 20 while she was out shopping. Xiaochan’s aunt said, “The child’s departure was too abrupt. There was a big hole in her head, and her nose and mouth were covered in blood.”

“It’s like the sky has fallen at home. Even now, I still think of my daughter as if she were alive,” Xiaochan’s father told reporters. Xiaochan was knocked down by a “Laotou Le,” which didn’t stop after the collision, dragging her for several meters. Ultimately, the vehicle’s chassis beam pressed against Xiaochan’s head.

She was a teacher, capable of educating people, but tragically died under a “Laotou Le” vehicle. It’s indeed unbearable and inconceivable.

In cases like this, the elderly might be suspected of committing traffic offenses.

According to Article 133 of the Criminal Law, those who violate traffic management regulations and cause major accidents, resulting in serious injury, death, or substantial public or private property losses, shall be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of not more than three years or criminal detention; those who flee the scene of a traffic accident or have other particularly egregious circumstances shall be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of three to seven years; those who cause death by fleeing shall be sentenced to not less than seven years of fixed-term imprisonment.

Regardless, it is hoped that this accident will be properly handled to provide the greatest comfort to the family.

In recent years, accidents involving “Laotou Le” vehicles have been countless. Currently, they have become a safety hazard on the roads. How to regulate, ban, or continue to allow them requires further consideration.

According to statistics released by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in 2017, in the previous five years, there were 830,000 traffic accidents involving low-speed electric vehicles nationwide, resulting in 18,000 deaths and 186,000 injuries.

Other cities, especially Beijing, have also begun to rectify.

According to Beijing Evening News, in 2022, there were 131 traffic accidents involving illegal electric three- and four-wheelers in Beijing, resulting in 138 deaths.

On April 12, the Beijing Traffic Management Bureau emphasized again that from January 1, 2024, illegal electric three- and four-wheelers will not be allowed to travel on roads, nor to park in roads, squares, parking lots, and other public places. The police will enforce laws against any such vehicles found traveling or parking illegally.
In addition, places like Jiangsu and Anhui have also begun to strictly control “Laotou Le” in various ways this year.

However, it is hoped that through multi-department cooperation, these vehicles can be banned and regulated from the source. The regulation of “Laotou Le” and other “three-no vehicles” is necessary to ensure traffic and road safety.

If there were no “Laotou Le”, perhaps the teacher would still be teaching. It’s tragic and regrettable.

The elderly must be held accountable for their irresponsibility in hit-and-run incidents, and this behavior must be condemned. The family members of the elderly are equally irresponsible. Indeed, it’s not without reason that people say, “Like father, like daughter.” Why would the daughter flee? Does she think that by running away, her father will not be found?

Regarding mobility scooters like “Laotou Le,” if they can be regulated and standardized according to the norms of electric vehicles, I support allowing them on the roads under compliant conditions. However, if “Laotou Le” cannot meet the standards of electric vehicles, they must be banned because the traffic problems they create are too significant.

Lastly, advanced age does not exempt one from legal responsibility. In the case of criminal liability, crimes committed by the elderly over seventy-five years of age may be subject to lighter or mitigated punishment, and it is very likely that they will be given a suspended sentence. After all, the risks of incarcerating someone of such an advanced age are considerable.

According to Urban Channel reports, on December 18th, a 22-year-old female teacher named Xiao Chan from Nanyang, Henan, who had just started her career for a year, tragically lost her life in a traffic accident on November 20th while buying groceries.

Xiao Chan’s aunt stated, “Her passing was so sudden. Her head had a significant hole, and her nose and mouth were covered in blood.”

“Ever since that day, our family feels like our world has collapsed,” Xiao Chan’s father told reporters. She was struck by an electric scooter known as “Lao Tou Le,” and due to the scooter not stopping immediately, Xiao Chan was dragged several meters. Eventually, the scooter’s chassis pinned her head.

This incident resulted in one fatality and one injury, with the responsible party being a man in his 70s named Li. The accident report indicates that Li violated three regulations and is fully responsible for the accident.

“Despite being in his 70s, he didn’t even have his headlights on at night, and he didn’t stop after hitting someone,” Xiao Chan’s mother remarked.

A lawyer stated that even though the perpetrator is over 75 years old, they still bear legal responsibility for their unlawful actions. However, their punishment can be mitigated within the boundaries of the law.

Finally, reporters and Xiao Chan’s family approached the local village committee secretary, who pledged to facilitate communication between the elderly man, Li, and his family, with the aim of reaching a settlement.

As early as 2017, statistics published by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology showed that within five years, there were 830,000 low-speed electric scooter traffic accidents nationwide, resulting in 18,000 deaths and 186,000 injuries.

It is heartbreaking to see the life of a young teacher come to such an abrupt end. Furthermore, the safety risks associated with electric scooters like “Lao Tou Le” are significant and warrant thorough regulation.

Xiao Chan, a young teacher who had recently entered the workforce, tragically lost her life due to a collision with a vehicle known as “Lao Tou Le.”

The Criminal Law of the People’s Republic of China also addresses the issue of elderly individuals' criminal responsibility. Although seniors may not be able to fully bear the consequences of their criminal actions due to physical or other reasons, they are still required to assume corresponding legal responsibility. In this case, even though Li is over 75 years old, he still bears responsibility for his unlawful actions.

Lastly, we must consider the rights of the victim’s family. The Civil Code of the People’s Republic of China clearly defines the scope and standards for compensation for personal injury. In this case, Xiao Chan’s parents can seek civil compensation from Li, including medical expenses, funeral expenses, and death compensation.

The question of whether “Lao Tou Le” vehicles should be banned or not is not just a matter of traffic management but also involves the quality of life for elderly individuals and social responsibility.

Simultaneously, society as a whole should make collective efforts to enhance traffic safety education, raise legal awareness, and jointly safeguard our safety and lives.

In this tragedy, we witness the consequences of negligence and evasion of responsibility, and we recognize the importance of accountability, empathy, and the rule of law.

May Xiao Chan’s story inspire more people to prioritize traffic safety and prevent the recurrence of such tragedies.

If the police cannot enforce the law on the elderly, there can be no regulation. This is a tragic situation through and through. The elderly are unlikely to have the means to compensate, and there may not be any criminal liability. The female teacher is most likely to have died in vain or the equivalent of it.

Most of the “Lao Tou Le” vehicles are operated by the elderly, and the probability of them obeying traffic rules is close to zero. The only feasible solution is to ban their sale. Whoever manufactures or sells them should be fined. In the event of accidents, both the seller and the manufacturer should bear joint liability.

Some people criticize the poor traffic conditions in small cities, but in reality, traffic conditions in large cities can be hellish. Conversely, small cities often have wide roads, are not congested, and are friendly to the poor for commuting. I would rather stay in a small city where electric scooters can roam freely than drive in a large city where I face frequent congestion and fines, and even riding a bicycle can lead to being fined.

Some words should not be strung together.

“Lao Tou Le.”

When these two words are combined, it results in unhappiness for other pedestrians.

Firstly, these vehicles inherently pose a certain degree of violation risk. Some of them lack permits or licenses, and it’s unclear whether they are qualified vehicles.

According to an Economic Daily report,

During every morning and evening rush hour, these “Lao Tou Le” vehicles disrupt road order and jeopardize public safety by running red lights, violating traffic rules, occupying lanes, and parking haphazardly. Data provided by the Beijing Municipal Traffic Management Bureau indicates that “Lao Tou Le” vehicles caused 131 traffic accidents in Beijing last year, resulting in 138 fatalities. As a result, there is a growing call from various sectors of society for the governance of “Lao Tou Le.”

Amid controversies and demands, two years ago, the Beijing Public Security Bureau, together with the Municipal Transportation Commission and other five departments, jointly issued an announcement to strengthen the management of non-compliant electric three- and four-wheeled vehicles. The announcement clearly states that the production and sale of non-compliant electric three- and four-wheeled vehicles are prohibited within the city. There is a transitional period for non-compliant electric three- and four-wheeled vehicles purchased before the announcement, which extends until December 31, 2023. Starting from January 1, 2024, non-compliant electric three- and four-wheeled vehicles are not allowed to be on the road or parked in public places such as roads, squares, and parking lots. Any of these vehicles found in violation will be dealt with according to the law.

Secondly, the issue lies with the drivers who are all elderly individuals. They do not have insurance, and they lack any capacity to fulfill obligations. If you have an accident, you won’t be able to find anyone to take responsibility. For instance, if a person in their seventies hits someone, they won’t compensate. Detaining them is not a good option since they lack the means.

Article 1213 of the Civil Code of the People’s Republic of China states, “Where a motor vehicle causes damage in a traffic accident and is at fault, the insurer of the compulsory motor vehicle insurance shall compensate within the liability limit of the compulsory insurance; for the amount exceeding this limit, the insurer of the commercial motor vehicle insurance shall compensate in accordance with the insurance contract; if there is still a shortfall or no commercial motor vehicle insurance is purchased, the tortfeasor shall compensate.”

According to the “Interpretation of the Supreme People’s Court on Several Issues Concerning the Application of Law in the Trial of Cases Involving Compensation for Damages in Road Traffic Accidents,” Article 16 states, “If a motor vehicle that has not been insured with compulsory insurance under the law causes damage in a traffic accident, and the parties request the obligor to compensate within the liability limit of the compulsory insurance, the people’s court shall support it.”

The third aspect concerns the issue of product non-conformity by manufacturers and operators.

Many elderly people drive “Lao Tou Le” vehicles without quality assurance, and they may have quality defects. These vehicles fall under the category of motor vehicles, but it’s unclear if the manufacturers have the complete production qualifications.

Therefore, in many cases of seeking rights and responsibilities, it also involves the issue of manufacturers.

The Civil Code of the People’s Republic of China stipulates, “If a product has defects that cause harm to others, the injured party can request compensation from the producer of the product or the seller of the product.” The “Product Quality Law of the People’s Republic of China” specifies, “The term ‘defects’ as used in this Law means unreasonable risks that endanger the personal safety and property safety of others; if there are national standards or industry standards that guarantee human health and personal safety and property safety, it refers to non-compliance with those standards.

The issue of elderly mobility vehicles has persisted for over a decade, referred to in the legal field as “three no’s” products (lacking national standards, no driver’s license requirement, and no insurance). The media and the legal community have repeatedly called for controlling the production and sale of elderly mobility vehicles at the source. However, due to various reasons and resistance, effective control has not been implemented. In recent years, with the electrification of automobiles, elderly mobility vehicles have not only escaped effective regulation but have also become increasingly widespread. The presence of these vehicles can be seen everywhere in both urban and rural areas.

To put it simply, the root cause is not the elderly mobility vehicles but the elderly individuals themselves. A group of septuagenarians and septuagenarian women, who are not being apprehended or penalized, have essentially become “outlaws.

Now it’s time to compare who is the real t0.

Vehicles like “Lao Tou Le” do not require a motor vehicle driver’s license, and most of the drivers are elderly people. Legal sanctions for accidents involving these vehicles are relatively light.

Currently, the dimensions of “Lao Tou Le” vehicles are even larger than those of the Wuling Mini, making it more challenging to ban them.

I’m puzzled. When a traffic accident results in a fatality, isn’t that criminal responsibility? Why didn’t the police detain the elderly man right away? It’s astonishing that they still haven’t located him and are now trying to find his family. What kind of surreal operation is this?

Lao Tou Le” vehicles generally cannot obtain motor vehicle licenses, do not require driver’s licenses, cannot be insured with compulsory insurance and commercial insurance, and most of them are oversized vehicles in nature.

From a legal perspective, in this case, the elderly man violated road traffic transportation regulations (the accident determination clearly states that the elderly man violated three regulations and bears full responsibility), drove a “Lao Tou Le” vehicle (most likely unregistered and without a license plate), caused an accident resulting in one death, and bears full responsibility for the accident. His actions are suspected of constituting the crime of traffic manslaughter.

Traffic manslaughter with one of the following circumstances shall be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of not more than three years or criminal detention: (1) If one person dies or three or more persons are seriously injured and the offender is fully or primarily responsible for the accident; (2) If three or more persons die and the offender shares equal responsibility for the accident; (3) If the accident causes direct losses to public or other people’s property, and the offender is fully or primarily responsible and unable to compensate for an amount exceeding three hundred thousand yuan.

In this case, the elderly man caused one death in a traffic accident and bore full responsibility, which conforms to the provision (1) above.

The elderly man in this case is in his 70s (exact age unknown). If he is over 75 years old and has full criminal responsibility, then according to legal provisions, for intentional crimes, the punishment may be mitigated or reduced; for negligent crimes, the punishment should be mitigated or reduced.

From the perspective of regulation, various regions are currently cracking down on “Lao Tou Le” vehicles. But ultimately, the root of the problem lies in production and sales.

Particularly in sales, what I mean by the source is mainly that the sellers of “Lao Tou Le” vehicles did not fulfill their obligation to rigorously check, such as failing to truthfully inform buyers about the performance and defects of “Lao Tou Le” vehicles and the roads they can be driven on. They even misled consumers by selling “Lao Tou Le” vehicles that meet motor vehicle standards as non-motorized vehicles. These actions can pose potential dangers.

Therefore, from a legal perspective, it is necessary to use administrative market supervision and media propaganda as two major tools to promote the obligation of “Lao Tou Le” operators to clearly indicate the nature of the vehicles, constitute warning defects, and bear product liability in accordance with the law. Strengthen the verification obligation of the seller.

Article 1203 of the Civil Code of the People’s Republic of China stipulates that if a product has defects that cause harm to others, the injured party may request compensation from the producer of the product or the seller of the product.

Article 46 of the Product Quality Law of the People’s Republic of China stipulates that the term “defect” as used in this Law refers to an unreasonable danger that jeopardizes personal or property safety. If there are national standards or industry standards that guarantee human health and personal or property safety, the term refers to non-compliance with those standards.

By doing so, it may not completely prevent such incidents from occurring, but it may alleviate them to some extent.

I am Lawyer Zhang Xin, welcome to follow me.

The law should treat everyone equally, and when a crime is committed, there should be consistent punishment. Insisting on granting privileges to minors, those over 75, mental patients, and so on, what are these privileges for? Everyone should understand that privileges are often exploited by others.

Let’s recap the situation at the time:

According to Xiaochan’s father, the accident happened while she was buying groceries. She was knocked down by a “lao tou le” (elderly leisure) vehicle. However, the driver didn’t stop immediately; instead, they continued driving, dragging Xiaochan several meters and pinning her head under the chassis of the vehicle.

After the accident, neither the driver nor their family proactively contacted Xiaochan’s family, nor did they express any apology. Xiaochan’s family also mentioned that they had tried multiple times to negotiate a resolution with the driver and their family, but without success.

As early as 2017, statistics released by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology showed that there were 830,000 low-speed electric vehicle accidents nationwide in the previous five years, resulting in 18,000 deaths and 186,000 injuries.

In 2022, there were 131 cases of illegal electric three- and four-wheel vehicle accidents in Beijing, resulting in 138 deaths.

Lao tou le vehicles have poor stability and are prone to swaying and tilting. Some vehicle doors have a noticeable plastic feel, and even if they are made of metal, the overall quality is poor. They lack even the most basic seatbelts, safety airbags, and child seat interfaces. The vehicle gaps are also relatively large, with some places large enough to fit a finger.

Let’s not comment on the quality of “lao tou le” vehicles for now.

Instead, let’s focus on the actions of the driver and their family. Is it because they are in their 70s and feel they can act recklessly? Or is it because “bad people” grow old too?

Sadly, in our country, there are quite a few of these elderly individuals who grew up in that era. Well, we can’t expect them to voluntarily abide by the rules. We can only rely on strict law enforcement.

Unfortunately, most of our good police officers exist mainly on the internet. I haven’t seen many of them dare to confront the old troublemakers who engage in activities such as insurance fraud, reckless driving, demanding money for staged accidents, or acting stubborn. Even if you say they can’t control the old folks, they don’t legislate to hold their children accountable, making it quite easy for these deadbeats when their family members aren’t held responsible.

I had three close encounters with “lao tou le” (elderly scooters).

The first time was during my early days at work, in the winter. I was riding my bike under a flyover, and a “lao tou le” coming from the opposite direction crashed into me, flipping my bike. Luckily, the speed wasn’t high. Being honest, I didn’t feign injury to extort money. I got up quickly, grabbed the elderly man, and scolded him. He explained that the sunlight from the opposite direction had blinded him, making it hard to see. He then gave me some cash as compensation.

The second encounter was during my youth in early summer. A “lao tou le” was driving against the flow of traffic in the non-motorized vehicle lane and stopped abruptly, blocking my way. I couldn’t hold back my anger and shouted at him. From the “lao tou le,” a middle-aged man wearing a gray jacket came down. He had a utility knife in his hand, with the tip menacingly moving in and out, threatening me. I quickly shut up and made a hasty exit. I followed his scooter for a while, thinking of a chance to confront him, but after some time, I let it go.

The third encounter was when my wife was pregnant, and I was riding an electric moped with her for a checkup. While waiting at a red light in the non-motorized vehicle lane within the guardrail’s narrow space, a “lao tou le” sped through from a very tight space beside me. It seemed like it even brushed against my clothing. I cursed, and the other person stopped and cursed back.

After that, I didn’t have such close encounters, but I do remember occasionally encountering “lao tou le” on the road while driving. It didn’t bother me; I just slowed down.

In summary, “lao tou le” gave me the impression of typical governmental negligence. It’s a type of quasi-motor vehicle with the potential to cause harm, but it’s poorly regulated. They don’t need licenses, they don’t buy insurance, and they are sold and produced casually. Many of the drivers are elderly individuals with questionable legal capacity and marginal social standing. Whoever encounters them ends up at a disadvantage.

In fact, if authorities believe that these vehicles aren’t worth regulating, they should just ban their production at the source. I don’t understand why they are allowed to be produced with licenses but not required to be registered for road use.

The first time I had an accident involving a “lao tou le,” I made appeals on Weibo, but no one paid attention.

Over ten years have passed, and the situation hasn’t improved. Finally, for some unknown reason, they are being banned now.

If the family wants to claim compensation, they should not only sue the elderly individual involved but also file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the “lao tou le” and the local traffic management and law enforcement authorities. This might have a slight chance of obtaining some compensation, although the likelihood is low.

The news mentioning the elderly person’s outstanding character and female identity is irrelevant in this context. It’s best to keep it concise to avoid unnecessary backlash or any connection to this incident.

Since the elderly person is an adult, any compensation can only be obtained from within their financial means. Based on the news content, it appears that the elderly individual may not have significant assets. Their children might have some financial ability, but it seems unlikely that you can get anything from them either. The law does not support such claims and is unlikely to do so.

Imposing a prison sentence wouldn’t serve much purpose either. Prisons would have to oversee it, provide medical care if needed, and it’s quite a headache. Moreover, they might find some reason to grant parole. Being incarcerated might not necessarily be a bad thing for this elderly person; their underlying health issues could receive treatment.

These are all matters of fate.

Zongxiang immediately said, “Lao Tou Le” has encountered trouble again, we really should take action.

If the law does not impose sufficiently deterrent punishment on the perpetrator, there will be more tit-for-tat incidents in the future. The old man killed someone else’s daughter, and someone else could use the old man’s daughter to pay for it.

I’ll answer right away while in the office area.

You really can’t regulate these old vehicles!

Because the leaders don’t take responsibility either. If they arrest the old man and something goes wrong, whether it’s justified or not, the government has to compensate, and the leaders won’t bear that burden. They pass the blame to the grassroots police, who can handle that?

And then there are the keyboard warriors and the so-called social justice warriors who fan the flames. They don’t care about right or wrong!

Our instructor used to be the deputy director of a sub-bureau. He detained an old man in his 60s for theft, and the old man died about a week after he was released. His family caused trouble, and in the end, the government compensated them. Did the bureau chief get reprimanded by the secretary? Our instructor’s promotion was stalled, and it took several years for him to finally get promoted. That’s how it goes in this life.

And this is with the old man’s medical examination report intact and without any health issues found during the examination.

In this day and age, the lives of criminals are more valuable than those of the police officers. When a criminal dies, they aggressively investigate and hold the police officers responsible.

In the case of this 70-year-old man who caused a fatal accident, it’s a big deal, and he will definitely be detained.

But if it’s just a minor accident, these old folks usually have some kind of medical condition, and detention centers typically won’t take them in. Plus, according to the Criminal Law, if someone over the age of 75 intentionally commits a crime, they can receive a lighter or reduced punishment; for negligence, they should receive a lighter or reduced punishment.

It’s really baffling! These old folks can do whatever they want!

No driver’s license, no registration, these unregistered three-no products,

Can actually dominate the motor vehicle lane with impunity,

At least half of the responsibility for this lies with the traffic management department.

Electric scooters are checked rigorously all day long, but when it comes to elderly men and women, they dare not say or stop them.

The existence of “Lao Tou Le” is actually based on the concession of public authority to the elderly, weak, and disabled.

These groups are very vulnerable to injury or death when facing law enforcement due to their physical conditions.

As long as strict law enforcement is applied to these groups, there will inevitably be a large number of injuries or fatalities.

There was a local case where the suspect was 94 years old and seriously ill.

The police officers handling the case were extremely anxious during the process, living in constant fear and uncertainty, as if they were on the edge of a cliff or walking on thin ice.

In contrast, the suspect himself was quite indifferent to life and death; nothing seemed to matter to him.

Choosing the lesser of two evils, the state probably believes that the elderly, weak, and disabled have limited capabilities and are less destructive than law enforcement agencies.

They would rather have “Lao Tou” annoy people everywhere than see law enforcement agencies covered in blood.
