Russian zebra crossing

Russian police trying to make motorists respect pedestrians on zebra crossings thought of drafting in exotic zebras to halt Moscow traffic.

Only, police in the Russian capital could not get any zebras - so they painted black stripes on white horses instead.

They paraded the horses over crossings,
forcing motorists to slow down and read road safety messages.

And a fat lot of use that will do.
