Pedestrians in Shijiazhuang, capital of Hebei province, now face punishment if they cross against a red light.

According to a report in Legal Daily, Shijiazhuang on Oct 23 launched a two-month campaign in which pedestrians will be fined less than 50 yuan ($8) for violating certain traffic rules.

According to the regulation, the first three pedestrians who cross against a red light in large crossroads will be fined; in small crossroads, all such pedestrians will be fined.

Those who refuse to pay the fine will need to work as traffic volunteers where they crossed against the red light.

Shijiazhuang has more than 400 crossroads that have a traffic-light system. In some large crossroads, the problem with pedestrian traffic violations are serious, said Wu Ruiqi, director of Shijiazhuang’s traffic police department.
