London, Dec 15 (ANI): A scheme by the Czech interior ministry to make road junctions in Prague safer by pitching cardboard cutouts of female traffic police has failed.
The miniskirt-clad officers have proved such a distraction, that accidents have actually doubled since they were installed.
The Czech capital Prague decided to put women officers on duty with stop-and-go signs at a variety of dangerous junctions after it was decided traffic lights were too costly, reports the Telegraph.
But with their raised hemlines, high heels, stockings and lipstick, the police officers have become crash-magnets.
"I admit I was looking at her, thinking what the hell is she wearing a miniskirt for in this weather?" said a driver involved in a crash.
A Czech radio station recently provided hats and jackets for the cutouts, but they were stolen, before one of the officers was stolen herself.
The Czech interior ministry is now rethinking the scheme. (ANI)
