The driver, only identified by his surname as Chen, was tracked down by the local police after his viral picture caught their attention. He was given a stern lecture about wearing a facial mask while driving at night, according to Shanghaiist.

However, his company did not find this verbal warning to be enough of a punishment for the 25-year-old driver. In addition to that, the cab company slapped Chen with a three-day suspension for what he did.

Chen, while speaking to the media, admitted that he was surprised to find out that his face covered in facial mask picture had been circulating on Chinese social media. The young cab driver then revealed that he started doing the nightly routine after he realized that night shift was doing terrible things to his complexion.
