Romanian village removes 'drunken pedestrian' road signs

23rd March 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

Romanian officials have removed road signs warning drivers about the dangers of drunken pedestrians, it has been confirmed.

The bright red signs, which feature the message 'Attention - Drunks', were erected in the small village of Pecica over concerns about a spate of accidents involving revellers.

However, the local council has now announced that the signs - which also depicted a person crawling on their knees with a glass in one hand - have been taken down.

"Following the excessive coverage of the … road signs … (the) local government decided to change them," said mayor Peter Antal in a statement on the council's website.

"We had consultations with representatives of Arad County Traffic Police and we decided together that this indicator be changed to those with the meaning 'other dangers', which are … in the road."

Mr Antal also maintained that drivers should remain wary about the dangers of drunken pedestrians in some of town's most popular nightspots.

Pecica, which has a population of about 13,000, is situated 25km from the city of Arad.
