“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.”
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.
