Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on how you see it, traffic police in Shenzhen, a city in China's Guandong province, laid down a new law that forces drivers caught with high beams on to sit and stare into their own headlights as a punishment due to an increase in accidents linked with drivers being blinded by oncoming traffic. Anyone who refuses to accept the punishment will be slapped with a fine, a risk of losing their license and even having their car impounded.
However according to the local media, those who had been through the punishment claimed that they were forced to stare at the headlights for more than five minutes instead of under a minute as stated by the law. It is unknown whether anyone has had their cars impounded yet though.
