Beijing traffic police Thursday began enforcing a fine of 200 yuan (29 US dollars) for motorists who fail to give way to pedestrians on crosswalks.
The violation will also result in a loss of three demerit points. When motorists lose all 12 points they must retake the driver's license test.
Traffic police and volunteer civilian assistants will be stationed at the first batch of 46 crossings within the city to enforce the rule. It has been made clear that even if a right turn on a red light is generally permitted, drivers must stop for pedestrians.
The enforcement of the fine comes days after surveillance camera footage went viral showing a woman in central China's Henan Province being hit by a taxi while on a crosswalk. Lying on the crosswalk, she was run over by a second car.
Traffic police records show that in the capital last year, 18 people were killed, and another 21 injured in 37 accidents that involved motorists failing to give way to pedestrians on crosswalks. (news from CRI)

Finally a truly uplifting news from China! Motorists need to be put in their station. But pedestrians too need to learn how to navigate their way across streets. Once jaywalking is out of fashion all over China, you can expect motorists to be civilised too.
