Street prostitutes in Italy ordered to wear high-visibility vests so motorists can see them

The order decreed by authorities in Spino d’Adda, a town just south of Milan, will affect sex workers who line up along busy main roads

Their normal attire consists of high heels and mini-skirts, but prostitutes touting for business on roadsides in Italy have been ordered to start wearing glow-in-the-dark vests so that they can be spotted by passing motorists.

Sex workers who refuse to wear the luminous vests run the risk of being fined up to €500 (£360).

The order has been decreed by authorities in Spino d’Adda, a town just south of Milan, where working girls line up along busy main roads.

“Sex workers should be treated the same as road workers and obliged to wear clothes that render them more visible,” said Luciano Sinigaglia, the deputy mayor of the town.

The new decree is expected to come into effect early next month.

Its real intention appears to be to discourage prostitution entirely, moving the sex workers to other parts of the region.

During the warm summer months prostitutes, many of them from Eastern Europe and West Africa, line up along main roads leading out of big cities such as Milan and Rome.

There has been a sharp increase in prostitution in Milan this year with the opening of the Expo, a world fair featuring pavilions from dozens of countries, including Britain.

Around 20 million people are expected to have visited Expo, which is based on the theme of nutrition, by the time it ends in October.
