    "Drivers made to hop like frogs
    Truck drivers who are caught speeding in an Indian state are being made to
    hop like frogs.
    Police in Bihar dish out the humiliating punishments instead of taking
    offenders to court, reports Newindpress.com.
    For the most popular punishment, leapfrog, speeding truck drivers have to
    sit on their haunches, hold their ears and hop for almost half a kilometre.
    And the drivers are made to chant the name of the political leader they like
    most while they are being punished.
    One policeman was quoted as saying: "If they remember their leader when they
    are being punished, it's like they are insulting them. If they have any
    sense, they won't do the offence again.""
