Russian Traffic Police Hire Guarding Angels to Remind about Traffic Rules

A woman with white wings and a halo has been spotted on the busiest streets of Russia’s Kaliningrad region to warn drivers against speeding.

      Olga Maschenko, a freelance traffic police officer, has decided to become a "guardian angel" in order to remind drivers to watch their speed. She usually stands on the side of the road, making gestures for driver to reduce speed and talking to some of them about traffic rules

      Olga's appearance always makes Russian drivers smile and respond positively. Some daredevils even wanted to take Olga with them, but her fellow police officers are always on her guard.

      Drivers shattering speed limits, many of them drunk, are to blame for a number of road accidents in Russia. Earlier this year Russian MPs suggested that drink-driving accidents causing deaths be made equal to terrorism. The proposal came after a dreadful incident in Moscow when a drunk driver rammed a bus stop killing 5 orphans and 2 their teachers at once.
