Drunk in Road (Updated)

March 10, 2010

It was hard to believe that this story wasn’t a hoax, but it apparently is the real (weird) deal:

“Road safety chiefs have put up traffic signs warning motorists of drunks in the road in a bid to reduce accidents. Mayor Petru Antal ordered the signs – saying ‘Attention – Drunks’, complete with an image of a reveller on his knees with a bottle – after despairing of accident figures in Pecica, Romania.”

Attention: Drunks

Attention: Drunks

Gives a whole new meaning to “drunk driving.”

Update 3/19/10: The signs have been taken down:

But now, after the sign received what council bosses describe as “excessive media coverage” they have decided to change them.

New sign will be put up warning drivers of “other dangers” – and not showing the humorous graphic.

Dang!

We recommend you stay away from Pecica, then, Paul.

If you travel through Pecica at night, can you see the drunks ahead of time by looking for eye-shine?

Wonder if I can get the city council to put up a sign like that in my town. Right by the bars.

Wonder if we can get our city council to put up a sign like that in our town – right by the yoga centers. I don’t how many times I had to swerve out of the way of some zonked out yoga student leaving one of their classes.
