Women touting for customers on a rural highway outside Els Alamus near
Lleida in Catalonia have been told to don the yellow fluorescent bibs or pay
fines of 40 euros (?36) under road traffic laws.
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.
