As a part of the Chinese Government's campaign to make Shanghai a more pleasant and less challenging as far as hygene is concerned, not only will the government be shutting down any restaurant that doesn't scrape up to new health standards. According to a report, issued by the State Media - which would never lie - it seems that cabs in Shanghai will soon be fitted with metal trays meant to capture any spit passengers or drivers would care to expel while driving.

Outlawing spitting was out of the question for what reason? Instead, money is spent to equip vehicles with spitting trays to simply accommodate for the fact that people must not just spit, but spit to the extent that it's a problem that needs to be addressed.

Perhaps, if they went the other way and encouraged everyone to spit relentlessly, a wave of Chinese saliva would wash away the filth the government feels stands in the way of Shanghai being granted the World Expo for 2010.
