Bright-Ass Yellow Is So In Right Now: Spanish Prosties Ordered To Wear Safety Vests

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.

I'm not really into women in bright yellow, but men in bright orange? *shivers* So hot right now. Just kidding. Well, half-kidding. 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!

Thanks to Shenanigans and Blaqk Panda, who have never been with ladies of the night. Men of the morning either -- allegedly.

There are Comments.

    I wonder if up to now they are still wearing those protective flourescnet vests. I believe that they really need to wear those because they are on the streets at night and people might not notice them and might hit them or they might be the reason for someone to get an accident. So, I am very well agreeing to this law. -http://www.tridentsupplyllc.co...
