Yellow light is the new red?

China’s revised traffic regulation, dubbed "the strictest traffic rule ever,” which took effect on Tuesday, has drawn the ire of many drivers. According to the rule, running a yellow light would be equivalent to running a red light and cost drivers a deduction of six points on a 12-point system. Do you think it is fair to impose such a heavy penalty on drivers running yellow lights?

Wary of yellow lights

Yes. The harsher punishment will help ensure road safety. Drivers should slow down while approaching an intersection, which is just common sense that all drivers should follow.

No. The yellow light should be considered a warning and the red light an imperative. And it would lead to more accidents and traffic congestion.
