City Hires Mimes to Mock Bad Drivers

Mimes! It's a universally-acknowledged truism that you can never have too many mimes. The city of Caracas, Venezuela, demonstrated this by hiring mimes to stand in a neighborhood reputed to have the worst drivers. When drivers break the rules of driving safety, the mimes let the drivers know in a mime-ish way:

Dressed in clown-like outfits and white gloves took to the streets of the Sucre district this past week, the mimes wag their fingers at traffic violators and at pedestrians who streaked across busy avenues rather than waiting at crosswalks.

They found plenty to keep them busy in a city where motorcycle riders roar down sidewalks, buses drop passengers in the middle of busy streets and drivers treat red lights and speed limits as suggestions rather than orders.

"Most people are collaborating, but bad habits are usually hard to break and some drivers just don't change their ways," said Neidy Suarez, an 18-year-old mime wearing fluorescent yellow overalls and a bright red ribbon wrapped around her pigtails.

Antanas Mockus.. mayor of Bogota was the precursor of this idea.... but without basis.. there is just a simple idea.
