Shanghai Police Publicly Shame 12 Jaywalkers, List Includes 4 Foreigners
Apr 18, 2016 By eChinacities.com

Shanghai Huangpu police publicly shamed jaywalkers on its official Weibo page. The police department posted photographs of 12 different Shanghaiers jaywalking this past Friday. The photos are part of a campaign against traffic violations in Shanghai.

The photos include a far-away shot of the person jaywalking and a close-up on their face, and are captioned with the location were the person was caught jaywalking. Interestingly, the jaywalkers included a group of four young foreign men pictured crossing a crosswalk with a “Don’t Walk,” signal.

its safer to cross on a red light than green cause cars don't yield to pedestrians

The police need to do this, I agree. But how about those who cut through red lights? How about motorcycles that drive on sidewalks to save time? How about the people using wide open public areas as their private toilets? How about the smokers who blow pollution into non smokers faces in restaurants, though there are laws now, and in public areas without regard for others? How about the hack n spitters? How about parents who cut holes in their kid's pants and let them water where others walk and play or flower gardens in parks? How about those who toss trash everywhere when a garbage can is within reach? Publicly shaming jaywalkers may or may not save lives but I think there is profit to be made for the police here if they ever decided to get serious, like they are in Singapore or Hong Kong.

Posting pictures of one or two foreigners who do something illegal is much more fun than dealing with the thousands of Chinese people who behave in the same way.

Maybe the Police should shame the drivers who don't stop at lights, crossings etc...The pedestrians wouldn't need to jaywalk..
