Lifetimes for low-lying members of the irregular $\Delta
I=1$ band in 196Pb have been measured by means of the EUROBALL spectrometer using the coincidence recoil distance technique. The 164Dy(36S,4n)196Pb reaction at a beam energy of 168 MeV was used. The data were analyzed with the differential decay-curve method (DDCM). A characteristic drop in the reduced transition probabilities with increasing angular momentum was observed in agreement with predictions by the semiclassical model for the shears mechanism.
