Their normal attire consists of high heels and mini-skirts, but prostitutes touting for business on roadsides in Italy have been ordered to start wearing glow-in-the-dark vests so that they can be spotted by passing motorists.
Sex workers who refuse to wear the luminous vests run the risk of being fined up to €500 (£360).
The order has been decreed by authorities in Spino d’Adda, a town just south of Milan, where working girls line up along busy main roads.
“Sex workers should be treated the same as road workers and obliged to wear clothes that render them more visible,” said Luciano Sinigaglia, the deputy mayor of the town.
So, get designing those hot pants and bikini tops in high viz fabric. As Peter wrote into say:
The guy first hits the streets with a range of sexy, high-vis, working-girl ware’s gonna clean up, big time.
Daisy Dukes in flourescent yellow, why not?
