"Crack the whip" = quất roi -> nghĩa là dùng quyền hạn đe dọa để khiến người khác làm việc chăm chỉ hơn hoặc cư xử tốt hơn.

Ví dụ
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Pune, has cracked the whip on 28 retail medical shops in the district for overcharging buyers for the protective face masks in the time of Covid-19.

The inquiry (điều tra) is the latest move by federal regulators to crack the whip on big tech in an attempt to monitor their activities. Increased scrutiny (quan sát kỹ lưỡng) by federal and state officials this year has pushed major social media websites and apps to answer for perceived improper uses of consumer data and violations of federal anti-monopoly law (luật chống độc quyền).

Enlarging the scope of the Special Enforcement Bureau (SEB), which was initially created to crack the whip on illegal transportation of liquor and sand, the State government on Thursday issued orders permitting the bureau to handle offences like gambling and gaming of all kinds (including online betting, matka (xổ số)), cases of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances like ganja (một loại ma túy) and others, manufacturing and sale of banned products such as gutka. The SEB will also be handling the smuggling of red sanders, in coordination with the Red Sanders Anti-Smuggling Task Force. In the recent Cabinet meeting, the government had taken a decision in that regard.
