Salute your Shorts!

scratch that! I mean, car? Looks like China is at it again. School children at Luolang Elementary are now saluting cars as they drive by.

Education officials promoted the saluting edict to reduce traffic accidents and teach children courtesy. Critics, who have posted thousands of negative comments about the policy on China’s electronic bulletin boards, beg to differ. “This is just pitiful,” wrote one in a post last year. Only inept officials would burden children with such a requirement rather than install speed bumps, others insisted.
