Curse the high beam drivers and their irresponsible driving behaviour. Other than giving a blinding headache, high beam headlights have also been associated with being the cause of many road accidents. It seems as though a certain Chinese company was equally disgusted by the practice, but instead of performing the usual “retaliatory antics” on the road, they came up with a genius solution.
This Chinese company has manufactured scary reflective decals featuring all sorts of horrific pictures such as ghosts, women with bloody mouths, yellow-eyed werewolves, vampires and monsters. which shine when a high beam driver approaches the vehicle. And the stickers have become an instant hit, and a host of e-commerce sites like Taobao are already selling them.
These scary decals are being sold for $3 – $18 on Taobao, the price depending on their size and the ease of application. And although the traffic police in Jinan, eastern Shandong province, has warned against these stickers and even applied a fine of 100 yuan ($15) for such decorations, this hasn’t deterred the drivers who are fed up with the high beam users.
However, no accidents caused by the scary decals have been reported so far, but sadly same cannot be said about the use of high-beam headlights, the count of which goes to several dozens according to the Chinese media.
Do you think this will be a good enough measure to discourage people from using high beams? Comment below!
