Traffic police in Suzhou, Jiangsu province were reportedly 'terrified' when they saw what they thought was a 'ghost' driving a car. 

The officers were patrolling the city's Wujiang district on the evening of November 8 when a woman drove past wearing a facial mask. The Scooby Gang ordered her to pull over and when they took a closer look realised that "why, it was Mr Jenkins all along", or, in this case, a woman wearing facial mask to moisturise her skin some after a tough day's work. 

The cops warned the woman that while wearing a mask is not illegal, it might scare other idiots drivers, and they recommended she conduct her beauty regimen at home from now on.
