Beware of Prostitutes~

Went out alone for dinner tonight cuz' my usual 'dinner partner' was working evening shift~
Ordered a bowl of noodle and sat down flipping newspaper which was laying quietly on the table~

Most of the news was fatal accident death during the Chinese believed 'tomb-sweeping' festival (清明节 qing ming jie) which purpose is to remind us to remember our 'root' and our ancestors~

And then~ something caught my attention!

THIS SIGN
** picture adapted from the internet**

It was reporting that the Italian government has to set up the road sign due to 'over-number' of prostitutes that caused massive road accident to on-lookers. HAHA!

I went home and search the internet and found some articles as well...


Prostitutes sign confuses motorists (link)

A road sign warning of prostitutes is confusing motorists in an Italian town.

Published: 11:25AM BST 02 Apr 2010

The red-bordered triangular sign shows a scantily-clad woman, who is also carrying a handbag, in the city of Treviso in northern Italy.

The sign states 'Attenzione Prostitute' - seemingly warning people of prostitutes in the area.

Motorists and pedestrians have complained that the sign is 'confusing', saying they don't know if it means to watch out for crossing hookers or if it means prostitutes operate in the area.

One local Dino Vezino, 34, said: "I was driving in to work and saw this sign and had to slow down to get a proper look.

"I couldn't believe it - the woman has a mini-skirt and high heels on and very big breasts.

"I just couldn't work out what it was for?

"Does it mean I have to look out for prostitutes crossing or that they are available around here?"

London, April 3 (ANI): Special road signs warning commuters of prostitutes have been installed near Treviso, northern Italy.

The signs are triangular and red-bordered with an image of a big-breasted woman wearing a mini-skirt and high heels and carrying a handbag, reports the Sun.

Thirty such signs have been put up on a road known for the harlots near Treviso.

The sign says "attenzione prostitute" meaning, "Watch out for prostitutes."

A local man found 35 prostitutes within a stretch of two miles.

"By night it's a sexed-up superhighway," he said.

Resident Dino Vezino, 34, said: "I saw this sign and had to slow down to get a proper look.

"Does it mean I have to look out for prostitutes crossing or that they are available around here?" (ANI)
