The experienced motorist will have seen a multitude of road signs warning of children crossing, elderly pedestrians and wildlife.

But the one to the right would surely prompt a second glance. Some might say that the image of a well-endowed woman in mini-skirt and high heels is, in itself, a hazard. Giovanni Azzolini, mayor of Mogliano in the Italian province of Treviso, however is determined to use every means to fight the growing number of prostitutes – often transsexuals – who line the streets at night.

‘I will not leave any citizen alone to combat this phenomenon, which has by now surpassed any level of tolerability,’ he said.

He added that some motorists were having accidents after being distracted by scantily-dressed hookers.

In addition to the signs, police patrols are being stepped up. Both prostitutes and their customers face large fines if caught.

    Is most of them hookahs is trannies, shouldn’t that sign reflect it? Better make that change pronto — no, not sex change — and change the sign or the town will not only have a tranny hooker problem, but a discrimination lawsuit on its hands.

    Wait, hooker trannies are a “phenomenon”?

    I am from near Mogliano, and actually soo many hookers on the street make difficult to concentrate while driving…
    by the way, often the transexuals are more beautiful than the “straight” ones.

    Spoken like an Italian. Unlike the US they have no fear to say things like that honestly. In US that would be grounds for a derisive name.

    I still do not understand WHY prostitution is not legal and regulated. Especially regulated with the high incidents of human trafficking around the world.

    Give a monkey a brain.

    This reminds me of the time I taped a “Nudist Crossing” sign over the “No guiderail protection” that is on my property. Not that people had accidents, but that they actually slowed down, for the 3 days that it was there. I have had 2 cats and a dog get hit by people speeding down my narrow road. It’s a shortcut, so they just ignore the 40 mph limit. It’s narrow, there’s no shoulder, and people think that they can just travel as fast as they want on it.
    I have a running joke with my neighbor who lives about a quarter mile down the road, on the other curve in the road. When the power goes out for seemingly no reason, it’s generally because some speeder has hit the pole on either end of the straightaway. I’m on one end, and my neighbor on the other end call each other when the power goes out, and ask if someone’s hit “their” pole. It’s amusing, but not funny. There are crashes all the time. If people would only slow down.

    Near my house is a blind curve on a two lane blacktop road, and when it rains it’s quite dangerous. Nobody pays attention to the signs. What’s amazing is the telephone stand (slightly bent) at the bottom of the ditch at “Dead Man’s Curve” which immediately connects you to a random selection of 24 hour tow services. Har!

    That sign is missing the penis on the hooker.
