Attention - Drunks

March 10, 2010 – 12:49 pm

The Romanian village town of Pecica has a new approach to pedestrian safety and has set up some warning signs for motorists warning them of drunken pedestrians - the warning signs carrying the phrase “Cetateni Turmentati” translating to “Attention - Drunks” and picturing a pedestrian on his hands and knees with a bottle in his hand. It should be noted that attention to detail shows the drunk hasn’t actually spilled a drop.

The Mayor of Pecica - Peter Antal - said that the idea came after he visited town in Germany which did a similar thing. He said that after an alarming number of accidents involving rather annebriated people action had to be taken. He acknowledged that although the accidents are caused by the drunks, it is the motorists that need to take the precautions as the drunken pedestrians are “beyond caring”. The problem for the town essentially caused by a mixture the volume of traffic through the town and the towns vibrant nightlife, which sadly has resuled in fatalities.

Residents said they found the signs amusing.
