Drivers Stare Into Police Headlights As Punishment For Misusing High Beams

Police take 'eye-for-an-eye' approach to drivers misusing brights

Police in Shenzhen, China are hoping thoughtless drivers who blind others with their high-beams will see the light after being forced to stare at police headlamps as punishment.

On their official social media account, police posted an image of a young man staring into the glare of a police cruiser's headlights. The police call it an appropriate experience for those who are blinding oncoming traffic.

"From now on, traffic police will make those found carelessly using bright lights to look at them for five minutes," the post reads, according to ABC. The police ended their message with a smiley face.

Offenders will also be charged the equivalent of $49.00 and, perhaps worst of all, will be forced to endure a dressing down about their rude behavior from police.
