Town’s Anti-Prostitute Road Sign Causes Confusion
Motorists and passersby in the Italian town of Treviso are asking for clarification about a new road sign installed by local authorities. The road sign shows a big-breasted woman carrying a handbag and wearing what appears to be a really short mini skirt. Below the triangular sign are the words “attenzione prostitute,” which literally translates to “attention prostitute” in English.
People, however, are wondering whether the sign is intended to warn motorists to watch out for crossing prostitutes or to remind visitors that hookers are aplenty in the area. According to a motorist quoted by the Telegraph, he had to double check what the sign really meant. “I was driving in to work and saw this sign and had to slow down to get a proper look. Does it mean I have to look out for prostitutes crossing or that they are available around here?”
