Jaywalkers in China to be Fined via Text Message, after Identified on Camera

Not only will jaywalkers be publicly shamed by having their photos and family names broadcast in public on billboards above traffic intersections, but they’ll also be fined via text message in the near future. The tech uses facial recognition to identify the offender and then send the person an electronic ticket. This new fining method is currently being vetted with local phone companies.
