Topless woman recruited to control speedsters

Russia's novel take to avert accidents

A Russian village has adopted a novel strategy to avert and reduce the increasing traffic accidents due to speeding.

Topless women holding placards warning of speed limits walk the roads in Severny village.

These scantily-dressed women parade around accident-prone sites reminding motorists to keep within the speed limits, reported a news website.

The record number of accidents have led to the country’s inclusion on the World Health Organisation’s list of the most dangerous countries for drivers.
