Getting a car through its roadworthiness certificate in Hong Kong is not what it used to be. Some years ago, you could just turn up at a designated vehicle testing centre and the examination would be over in 10 minutes. Now the average waiting period is two months. How can this be in “Asia’s world city”?
In 2011, the Independent Commission Against Corruption became aware that all was not as it should be. It mounted an operation and arrested more than 30 people that year, and about the same number again over the past few years, on charges of conspiring to forge the certificates.
