Letting the punishment fit the crime

Police in Shenzhen (southern China) "are punishing drivers who dazzle other road users with full-beam headlights by making them stare into the lights for a minute".

"Shenzhen's traffic police have opted for unconventional penalties before. Last year, they made jaywalkers choose between paying a fine or wearing a green hat and vest while directing traffic."
