Road signs warning drivers that intoxicated people may be in the road have been put up as Romania tries to reduce the number of accidents.

The signs read "Attention — Drunks" and show a reveller crawling along with a bottle in his hand.

Petru Antal, the Mayor of Pecica in Romania said his town had a vibrant nightlife.

"We are a border town and have lots of cars thundering through here all the time," he said. "But we also have a very vibrant nightlife and the two don't mix. We have to target the drivers because by the time they get to this state the pedestrians are beyond caring."
