woman was busted recently at an intersection in the Hebei city of Handan for using one of her sanitary pads in a rather unconventional manner.
Surveillance footage shows a woman hurriedly getting out of the passenger side door of a black Audi and placing something white on the end of the vehicle’s front license plate before hopping back into the car. Later, the woman is spotted jumping back out to remove that object.
The move was noticed by traffic police who stopped the car and questioned the two inside. At first, they tried to claim to have done nothing wrong but, eventually, were forced to come clean.
The driver claimed that she had started driving without thinking about local traffic restrictions which ban her car from being on the road on that day based upon its plate number. When the officer asked if she had used double-sided tape to block out her plate from cameras, the woman replied, “No, a sanitary pad.”
For the trick, she was fined 200 yuan ($30) and had 12 points deducted from her license.
