Buyers must use their ID cards to buy fireworks in Beijing during the upcoming Spring Festival, a city official said recently, which is the latest measure to control fireworks after placing bans on the materials in special regions across the city.

Tang Mingming, an official from the Beijing Emergency Management Bureau, said that the city will cut the retail outlets of fireworks from around 80 to 30, with no outlets within the fifth Ring Road, and sales will only take place from Jan 30 to Feb 9.

Each outlet will be equipped with special devices to identify buyers with their ID cards, and if safety problems occur, the buyers will be punished, Tang said, according to a report on the newspaper Beijing Youth Daily.

Beijing has already banned fireworks within the fifth Ring Road in recent years, and some districts also banned fireworks in certain regions. Tang said that the Tongzhou district, Beijing's sub-center, will completely ban fireworks this year.

Many Chinese cities have banned fireworks during Spring Festival, considering the potential for air pollution and injuries. Beijing's neighboring city Tianjin has banned fireworks across the whole city during the upcoming Spring Festival.

Last week, Xiongan New Area's Rongcheng county in North China's Hebei province also issued an entire ban on fireworks during the upcoming Spring Festival.

In ancient times people burnt bamboo which would give out considerable sound plus light those were enough to frighten away any possible attacking from the cruel spiritts around! That is why firework was named as 爆竹(exploding bamboo).
But in the modern society we are tired of kinds Of noise. It is terrible if you burn fireworks in the crowded urban area!
Our government may organize a formal firework-burning program for the spring festival which is carried out by professional policemen on special spot! That is enough!
Childish pure  mindset can simplify your life which let you live in a light way! Without man-made troubles you will work in high efficiency!

ID is not good enough; fireworks must be banned throughout China becaus eof fire hazards, air pollution, noise pollution etc!  In this day of high tech and advanced science the Chinese should not hang on to some silly out-dated superstition that fireworks will get rid of ghosts and bring good luck!
