Road signs warn drivers of drunks in the road

March 08, 2010 11:34 am

By Diana FasanellaIn an effort to reduce accidents involving nightclub revelers, one Romanian town has put up traffic signs warning motorists to be aware of drunks in the road.

Just drunks, not skunks, in the middle of the road
Pecica Mayor Petru Antal ordered the signs that depict the image of a kneeling partier next to a bottle of alcohol that says Attention Drunks to be erected along the roads in and out of the town that has a vibrant nightlife, Ananova reports.

The mayor pointed out that drivers are at risk of running over local residents, who enjoy the towns bars to the point where they are unable to take proper care of themselves on the way home.

We have to target the drivers because by the time the pedestrians get into this state they are beyond caring, Antal said.

8. You gotta love the logic of this:
We have to target the drivers because by the time the pedestrians get into this state they are beyond caring, Antal said.

10. Well, thank goodness it only warns of crawling drunks.
Reeling but upright drunks are still fair game! ;-)
