THE red buttocks of a golden monkey sitting on a traffic light pole caused a car crash in Guizhou, China.
Sin Chew Daily reported that a woman slammed on the brakes when she mistook it as the red light.
This caused another car to crash into hers.
When the driver demanded to know why she had stopped abruptly, the woman turned around to check, only to realise that a golden monkey was sitting on the traffic light.
The circus manager agreed to compensate the accident victims.
> A Facebook user came under fire for criticising the choice of attire of non-Muslim female students, China Press reported.
The Dec 22 post on the Universiti Malaya Confessions page called on non-Muslim students to wear thicker clothes in lecture rooms and avoid thin white T-shirts because their undergarments could be seen.
The author of the post, believed to be a male student, said he did not know where else to look.
His post attracted a lot of responses, which slammed him for imposing his values on others.
“You should be learning during lectures instead of looking at the undergarments of your fellow female classmates. If you have no self-control and keep thinking like a pervert, it doesn’t matter what they wear,” one of the comments read.
> The daily also reported that a traffic police officer sustained head injuries and broke his shoulder blade when a car rammed into him.
