Giovanni Azzolini, mayor of Mogliano in the Italian province of Treviso, however is determined to use every means to fight the growing number of prostitutes – often transsexuals – who line the streets at night.
‘I will not leave any citizen alone to combat this phenomenon, which has by now surpassed any level of tolerability,’ he said.
He added that some motorists were having accidents after being distracted by scantily-dressed hookers.
In addition to the signs, police patrols are being stepped up. Both prostitutes and their customers face large fines if caught.
