       Drivers who ignore yellow lightswill not face penalties for thetime being,China’s Ministry of Public Security(公安部)announced on January6.Instead,violators of the country’s new rule on the yellow light will receive warnings and education.The announcement came amid complaints about the rule,part of the newly revised set of traffic rules that took effect on NewYear’s Day.

  The traffic rules,branded as the harshest ever,view running a yellow light as seriously as running a red light.It is stated that vehicles must come to a complete stop at yellowlights unless part of the vehicle has already crossed the line.The penalty for a violation doubled to six points on the12-point scale for losing a license.
  In some cities,the traffic lights count down the seconds until the color changes,but this isn’t always the case,including at many intersections in big cities such as Beijing and Shanghai.
  Drivers accustomed to considering the yellow light a warning and the red light a“Stop”sign have been left irritated,complaining of the dangers of stopping short in front of other drivers or the inconvenience of always having to slow down when approaching intersections.
  It is against the laws of physics,said critics of the new rule.Some cited pioneering physicist Isaac Newton on the difficulty of stopping the momentum(冲力)of something in motion,saying the new rules are unreasonable and contrary to Newton’s first law.
  One driver posted on his Weibo account that he had rear-ended(追尾)a car which had suddenly stopped for a yellow light.The post was forwarded more than 23,000times.
  According to the public security ministry,the new traffic rules have been effective in regulating driving behavior,reducing traffic violations and preventing major road accidents.
  But the ministry said it will study the public’s suggestions on the yellow light rule and make improvements in order to maintain traffic order and ensure safety on the road.
