Apparently drivers in some parts of China have been flocking to buy these reflective ghost/scary face decals (~$3 – $18) that are only visible when the driver behind them is using their high-beams. The idea is to discourage high-beam use/scare the driver behind you into crashing. No, seriously, I think people are actually crashing.
BUT TRAFFIC POLICE IN SOME STATES HAVE WARNED AGAINST USING THE SCARY STICKERS, BECAUSE THEY COULD CAUSE TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS. POLICE IN SHANDONG SAY THEY’LL ISSUE 100 YUAN ($15) FINES TO DRIVERS USING GHOULISH DECALS.
IN BEIJING, POLICE SAY [CHINESE] IT’S NOT ILLEGAL TO HAVE THE DECALS ON, BUT THE DRIVER MAY HAVE TO BEAR RESPONSIBILITY OF ANY ACCIDENTS THAT RESULT FROM SCARING ANOTHER DRIVER WITH THEM.
You know what I do if somebody driving behind me has their high-beams on? Immediately pull over and get out and run because I do NOT have a valid license and shouldn’t be driving. What the hell was I thinking? I’m not going back to jail. Whose car was that anyways?
Keep going for several more shots of the possibilities. Also, no word if anybody’s seen the face in their own rearview and had a heart attack and/or caused an accident themselves. I know I would.
