Recently, China police announced the “eye for an eye” punishment on Tuesday (Nov 1), state-run news agency Xinhua reported. Drivers caught driving with their high beams will be punished in a unorthodox manner.
Offenders will be made to sit on a special green chair labelled “specialised chair for high beam test” and stare into the blinding headlights for 60 seconds.
They will also be fined 300 yuan (S$61) and made to read out regulations on when headlights can be put on high beam.
Singapore traffic police should learn from China police and make those drivers who modify their headlights sit in front of their own cars. As a taxi driver who is on the road everyday, I tell you the problem is worsening and police just not doing much about it. It is very uncomfortable and dangerous to drive when these cars shine their super bright head lights at you. I hope the authorities will look into the matter.
