WATCH: Booby (speed) trap

Breast way to reduce speeding? Topless women in racy outfits forcing drivers to slow down at pedestrian crossings
Breast way to reduce speeding? Topless women in racy outfits forcing drivers to slow down at pedestrian crossings.

Topless women have been sent onto the streets in a bid to force speeding drivers to slow down.

The bizarre idea has been launched by a road safety campaign in Russia (of course), which claims it is the best way to reduce speeding.

And it seems to be working as traffic approaching the pedestrian crossing has significantly slowed down… and surprisingly there have been no reports of accidents caused by drivers being distracted – yet!

Despite it’s slightly controversial approach it has also won backing from elderly pedestrians, who were terrified to cross the road before.

Despite it’s slightly controversial approach it has also won backing from elderly pedestrians, who were terrified to cross the road before.

The topless women held signs warning of 60 and 40 kilometres per hour.

Elderly pedestrians were grateful for the bizarre method, claiming they took their lives in their hands each time they use the designated road crossing.

“Drivers do not let us cross,” said one female pensioner.

“Some of them do but many others just fly past.

“They even shout at us – ‘why are you walking here?’ Can you believe it?”

One of the models who stripped off for the experiment said: “Our drivers usually do not slow down when they pass a village or a settlement even though there are speed limit signs by the road.

 

“So we have to make them do it.”

A male driver said: “It’s a super thing, amazing.

“I’d like to see more of this by the road, and yes I looked at speed limit sign this time. It will teach other drivers too.”

Warning: Video is a bit NSFW.

Igor Mikhailushkin, head of the regional police press service in Nizhny Novgorod region, where the experiment took place, said: “We have organised similar installations this and last year trying to make the drivers obey the speed limit.

“But I must say our girls were dressed more than these women.”

International comparisons show Russia’s roads as among the most dangerous in the world.
