Police in the Chinese capital have vowed to stop wedding cars from violating city ordinances after a series of complaints from motorists during the May Day holiday.

The most common violations include covering license plates with message boards, illegally parking on trunk roads and emergency areas, randomly cutting in lanes and breaching red lights, China Daily reported Monday.

These actions increase the risk of accidents, greatly affect other vehicles and hamper traffic flow, according to the notice by the Beijing Traffic Management Bureau.

On May 1, the last day of the three-day May Day holiday, police received 10 complaints about traffic violations by wedding cars.

According to the road traffic safety law, anyone who damages or covers up their car license plate faces a fine of 200 yuan ($32) and six penalty points.
