- Don’t be surprised if you see more car “ghosts” in China
Drivers who are fed up with high-beamers are taking action by using adding reflective scary decals on the rear windows of their vehicles. The decals were recently noticed by the traffic police in Jinan of the eastern Shandong province. They sell for about 16 yuan from the site Taobao. Looks like a great way to deter those high-beam headlights. Unfortunately, traffic police are not too happy about it and could fine users up to 100 yuan – and tougher punishments if it causes a road accident. As for those high-beam happy drivers? The Shenzhen police have announced an unusual punishment for them by having them stare into the headlights for 60 seconds plus a 300 yuan fine.
