Comments:
If you hide to not return, it is a crime. If you turn a found item over to the police, you will be rewarded. Such a hide-punish/return-reward mechanism encourages everyone to hand in any items they find. The traditional practice has been praising the return of lost property without offering any substantial reward. Now with clear regulatory approval, a reward will be guaranteed, this is progress.
Yangcheng Evening News, Oct 13
The regulation only shows that Chinese society is in transition. The introduction of the regulation shows society has reached the stage where such a legal provision can be effective. Legislators should not only be courageous, but also guide the public in their moral behavior.
Guangzhou Daily, Oct 14
Society has developed, and we are now at the point where we are evaluating if we need material incentives to encourage traditional virtues. As long as it is used properly, the rule is conducive to cultivating the right action through the incentive of a small reward.
