Daz­zling penalty for some high-beam driv­ers

China Daily (USA) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

Mo­torists in Shen­zhen in south­ern China who drive with their lights on full beam will be pun­ished by star­ing into pow­er­ful head­lights for a minute, the news agency Xin­hua re­ported.

The city’s po­lice an­nounced the pun­ish­ment on Tues­day, the state-run news agency Xin­hua re­ported.

Of­fend­ers will be made to sit on a stool and stare into the blind­ing head­lights for 60 sec­onds. They will also be fined 300 yuan (HK$345) and made to re­cite reg­u­la­tions on when head­lights can be put safely on full beam, the report said.

A po­lice post on so­cial me­dia showed a pho­to­graph of a man sit­ting on a chair look­ing into the bright lights of a truck, with two uni­formed of­fi­cers stand­ing by.

In other so­cial me­dia, some said the pun­ish­ment wasn’t enough.
