Dazzling penalty for some high-beam drivers
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.
