Spanish prosties hooking on the highway outside of Els Alamus have been ordered to wear reflective safety vests or face up to 40 euro (~$55) fines. But nobody looks sessy in reflective yellow!
Police claim the sex workers on the LL-11 road are not being specifically targeted because of what they do but because they posed a danger to drivers.
The prostitutes are in breach of 2004 law which states pedestrians on major highways and hard shoulders must wear the high visibility garments.
An estimated 300,000 women work as prostitutes in Spain where prostitution is not illegal but profiting from the sale of sex by another is.
Women wearing very little clothing and standing on roadsides outside towns and cities are a common sight across Spain. A recent survey found one in four Spanish men admitted to having paid for sex.

Also, making all the prosies dress in reflective vests isn't actually gonna do any good. Because, guess what: I've been hitting them all on purpose. Hooker? I hit and ran her!

That way if you're about to crash you can just jump off and blade to safety. Pretty genius if if you think about it. Just don't think about it for too long or you might start doubting the logic. And when you start doubting logic my friend, magic happens. CUT HER IN HALF -- ... / Continue →
Who cares if they're not DOT approved, they look cool. Safety can take a back seat to style any day, amirite? No, no that's a good way to die young and still leave a crappy looking corpse. Now I don't know how things work where you're from, but back in West Virginia it's con... / Continue →
