Spanish Prostitutes Forced to Wear Reflective Vests

by Liz Colville

Prostitutes working near the highway in Els Alamus in the Lleida region of Catalonia have been asked to wear reflective vests over concerns for their safety. Apparently, the prostitutes are in breach of the law. But not the law you might think! Prostitution is legal in Spain. (Pimpitution, however, is not.) The women are in disobedience of a law that says “pedestrians on major highways and hard shoulders” must wear the unfortunate yellowish garments, or else pay a fine of 40 euros. Here is a photo of a few newly precautionary ladies.
