Flashing bright headlights on vehicles are one of many potentially dangerous distractions that motorists face. Police in China are now cracking down on drivers who flash their lights in an effort to teach them a lesson.

Cops in Shenzhen are ordering offending motorists to sit on a plastic stool and stare at the bright headlights of a police vehicle. The officer’s car will have the high beams switched on for the duration of five minutes.

Shenzhen traffic police announced the unusual form of punishment on their Weibo account. They referred to it as an ‘appropriate experience’ that will hopefully show drivers the harm they are causing by making other motorists look at their bright lights.

After the five minute stare session is over, drivers receive a lecture about the danger and are usually issued a fine. While some locals are in favor of the unique punishment, others are skeptical and believe it’s a little over the top.

What do you think of motorists being ordered to stare at high beams?
