THE TRAFFIC POLICE IN QINGDAO, East China's Shandong province, clear some roads of traffic around Badaxia Square from 6:30 pm to 9 pm every day to keep them free for joggers. The police say the traffic control will continue. Beijing News comments:

That car drivers and joggers, especially those in groups jogging down the middle of the road, hate each other is nothing new. But their mutual hatred escalated last month when a taxi driver accidentally hit a group of joggers from behind in Linyi, Shandong, killing one of the joggers and injuring two.

The Qingdao traffic police say they decided to cordon off some of the roads to ensure everybody's safety, but according to the Road Safety Law, such measures can be taken only for major events or construction projects.
