Jaywalking, which basically means that a person is crossing or walking on the road without regard for the traffic, is a common problem many countries face. To curb the same, Hubei in China decided to do an interesting experiment.

To keep pedestrians from crossing the road during a red light, mini mist cannons have been installed. Any person, who tries to cross the road when the traffic is running, is sprayed with the water cannon and stopped. In a 40-second video posted by Shanghaiist, multiple people can be seen reacting to the water spray when they try to cross the road during the red traffic signal.
