The country also should immediately start research on including PE classes in the national college entrance exam, or gaokao, Wang said at a news conference.

>Use of phones banned in driving
英全面禁止开车用手机
It will become illegal for anyone to pick up and use their mobile phone while driving, under new legislation to be enacted in UK next year.
根据英国明年将实施的一项新法律,司机在开车时拿起并使用手机都将是违法的。
The punishment for drivers caught breaking the rules on hand-held mobile use is six penalty points and a £200 fine.
违者将面临200英镑(约合人民币1732元)的罚款并扣6分。
Under the proposals an exception will be made for contactless payments if the vehicle is not moving, and the goods or services are delivered immediately, such as at a drive-through takeaway.
根据提案,如果司机在免下车外卖店之类的地方停车进行无接触支付且马上取走货物或接受服务将不受处罚。
Making calls or texting on a hand-held mobile while driving is already illegal. The change will end a loophole that can allow drivers to escape punishment for using a hand-held phone to take a photo or play a game.
此前法律已禁止司机在开车时用手机打电话或发信息,而司机用手机拍照或玩手游却可以逃避处罚,新规将弥补这一漏洞。
