    Like many cities in mainland Ch!na (approx 173 cities give or take), Shanghai has in place various by-laws restricting or banning where motorcycles/motor-scooters may be ridden.

    The following post and links pertain to;

    1. Motorcycles/mopeds with out-of-town plates riding within Shanghai, and the restrictions to the movement/use within Shanghai motorcycle restricted zone.
    2. Motorcycles with Shanghai 'A' or 'B' plates, and the restriction to movement/use even in relation to the specific Shanghai motorcycle A/B restricted zone.
    3. Motorcycles with Shanghai 'C' plates, and the restriction to movement/use.

    Footnote: if one considers the cost of buying a Shanghai A/B (~130,000CNY) versus C plate (~25,000CNY) or versus getting the bike plated with a legal 'out-of-town' plate for a fraction of the Shanghai extortion like prices.

    The fine for getting caught riding a motorcycle or moped without the correct plates within any of the Shanghai restricted zone, or a motorcycle/moped equipped with the correct plate but ridden in violation/place forbidden within the restricted zone is 200CNY, therefore;

    The cost of a Shanghai motorcycle A/B plate is equivalent to 650 traffic fines @ 200CNY each which equals the cost of purchasing (privilege) the A/B plate. 650 x 200 = 130,000CNY

    The cost of a Shanghai motorcycle 'C' plate is equivalent to 125 traffic fines for violating the restricted zone @ 200CNY which equals the cost of purchasing (privilege) the C plate. 125 x 200 = 25,000CNY

    Having a Shanghai (Hu) A/B motorcycle plate (inner Shanghai zone) doesn't allow said bike to ride without restriction within that zone despite paying for the privilege - meaning there are still roads forbidden to Shanghai A/B plated motorcycles/mopeds within the restricted zone.

    Just sayin...

    Great information.
    So basically in Shanghai always get a plate from outside and never bother locally registering a bike if you have any connections outside the city. Do lots of right turns to avoid having to chat to the police unnecessarily, and always have a spare 200 yuan in cash. This will work out cheaper in the end unless you get caught over 125 times! LFZ.

    I guess the car fine is higher and they have automatic camera based fines for those?

    I don't think so, I live near the zhongshan park area in Shanghai and I could easily count 500 odd vehicles a hour passing through that doesn't have a shanghai plate. I mean, people need to come to Shanghai all the time from neighbouring jiangsu province. From what I understand you need to have you're ID registered in Shanghai to even get the plate.

    The Shanghai plate is just a load of b****cks in my opinion.

    If anyone is needing help registering a motorcycle on a plate other than a Shanghai one, feel free to contact me and I can help.

    I don't know much about Shanghai, but with Beijing the out-of-town cars have to stop by an office on the intersection of some various ring-roads and Expressways and buy a windscreen sticker allowing that vehicle to drive in Beijing or get some huge fine or other. Obviously being illogical car obsessed automatons there would be no similar facility for motorcycles.

    This used to be the case in SH also. When I was undertaking my MBA in SH (through most of 2009), driving up most weekends over the period of that year, at the SH boundary with Zhejiang province, one not only paid for the Expressway 'toll' but also a special label that allowed the 'car' to be driven on SH roads - and I believe covered some form of insurance. I seem to recall the fee was an additional 50kuai. I still have one of those labels on my car windscreen (which had to be affixed to the top LHS) from 2009 I believe. It was one label allowing 24 hour access to some of SH roads (but not all). The same label had to be paid at any of the highway tollbooths heading into SH too so it was a little difficult to avoid (though there used to be one way to get round a highway toll back in the day if one could be bothered). Motorcycles though never had to pay this SH entry fee, which is why I attempted to ride my motorcycle from NB to SH as often as I was willing to put up with the 8 hour one way ride (three-four times as long as it took to drive the car on the Expressway).

    I'm certain I drove to SH within the last year or two and remember being somewhat surprised that the label/fee were no longer required. I could be mistaken though. By the same token I have ridden to SH many many times since moving from SH (11 years ago) by motorcycle which had an out-of-town plate (NB, Zhejiang). Never once was I stopped/fined or had to explain myself to any SH authority, despite having ridden inside the restricted zone (People's Square, The Bund, Zhabei, Nanjing Dong Lu, Lui Jia Zui, et al. I think though I'd be able to show that I genuinely live outside SH, and would therefore be able to argue 'just visiting' with a high degree of confidence if I were/had been stopped by SH Traffic police.

    Not saying such a defence would work, but I would argue the case.

    I attempted a similar argument with the Traffic Police on the Zhejiang section of the G60 Expressway when I rode back from Thailand early March just gone, and was stopped/intercepted some 350km from home having already ridden some 3000+km on the Expressway from Xishuangbanna. I argued politely, I've a legal bike, legal plate, paid the exorbitant tax (~10K), insurance, have legal driver licence, and importantly if BJ national law does not forbid motorcycles from using Expressway, does it mean that Zhejiang by-laws trump the BJ national law. Or as I put it another way, is Zhejiang province not part of mainland China. Not to say it worked, though the Police did call the head of the Police to try and get a special clearance to allow me to continue - but failed. The Police tried to persuade me that the Expressway was a dangerous place to ride, and that a motorcycle would be safer ridden on the normal roads/highways... if it wasn't so sad such a statement would be laughable. Ironically as I rode several kilometres from where I'd exited the G60, I was almost T-boned by a vehicle that proceeded from a small side road driven by a clueless driver, who, as is customary round TIC failed to observe driving basics/fundamentals to look left and right. As I chant over and over, TIC the LFZ.

    In recent years there are so many vehicles inside SH adorned with out-of-town plates (despite SH government policies to curtail such practice), that out of town plated vehicles are able to have inspections completed in SH without the need to return to the city/province from which the plate is from, to undertake said inspection. I don't believe this to be extended to out-of-town plated motorcycles/mopeds though.

    Much like petrol forecourt employees trying to convince me that lugging an open aluminum kettle of 10 liters of 97 octane across their forecourt is the safest option.

    So utterly brainless that they sincerely believe doing something totally dangerous is safe and something safe is dangerous.

    Reads like the blind is leading the blind again..

    Lets not forget demerit points as quite a few riders got demerit points for being in restricted areas with outside plates, adds up quickly 4 x three points and bingo!!!!

    ride safe, PAL

    ps: tickets / points were given by cameras and the friendly blokes dressed in blue....
