China to install GPS in government cars to track misuse
BEIJING (Reuters) - China will install GPS systems in government cars to thwart personal use by officials, domestic media said on Friday, citing the Communist Party's anti-corruption watchdog, as it cracks down on the profligate lifestyles of corrupt officials.
Almost 200,000 government cars have been misused for private purposes, the Beijing Times newspaper said, citing the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.
The agency also recommended that ministries and regions detail the expenses of car costs.
The southern city of Guangzhou adopted a similar plan using Global Positioning Satellite systems in 2011, the paper said.
