Resourceful Chinese motorists have found ways to cheat the radar system that identifies speeding cars by their license plates.
In the U.S., speeding motorists are usually pulled over by siren-blaring police cars. In China, however, drivers are not stopped on the highway. As is common practice in a number of countries, Chinese drivers get their tickets in the mail, after radars identify speeding cars by their license plate numbers. A typical traffic ticket costs around 200 yuan ($32).
Naturally, resourceful citizens may be tempted to cheat the system. As Car News China reports (via The Truth About Cars), Chinese drivers have resorted to everything from toothpaste to sanitary napkins to hide or otherwise distort their license plate numbers.
Though it seems like a cleverly deceptive way around the law, should drivers be caught using stickers to fake their plate numbers, they can get up to 15 days in prison, an 1800 yuan ($285) fine, and the loss of their license.

I go to China every one or two years and China's drivers never cease to amaze me. It's like a giant pinball machine on their local streets and highways; traffic lights mean nothing, stop signs mean nothing, turn lanes mean nothing and sidewalks and medians are used when traffic is slow or congested. Bicyclists and pedestrians must fend for themselves because they are simply in the way as far as automobile drivers are concerned and a taxi ride is enough to give you a heart attack or stroke.
