    Amusing video. I do see the draw back of having traffic come to a stand still. The girls should not let that happen.

      Thanks for the video. I loved the attitudes that we found not just in Denmark, but throughout Scandinavia.

        I think its a great idea. Even more important than if it works or not,, I applaud a society where this can even happen.

          Not likely to happen in the U.S. But I like the idea. Maybe one day sites like this one and Topfreedom will get The U.S. to this point but it looks like a long road ahead

            A novel way to slow/stop the traffic - I can't see it happening in Britain!

              I'm sure it works everywhere. Why not to use it then? Nice and fun idea. Who cares that traffic stops?

                Come on, guys, wise up. This is just a gimmick. If anything, it could be dangerous as it distracts drivers. It'll be forgotten about within a week or two.

                  This works, especially when a motorcycle cop is near by. Several California cities use these new electronic sign active radar units to warn, and slow traffic.

                    It would be a bit of a distraction to certain drivers. That one guy slammed on his brakes. But I'd bet that if it were continued for a long time, the speeding problem would just come back. And it would be hard to continue into the winter.

                    And yes Stu, of course it is a gimmick. They are trying novel ways to get drivers to slow down.

                        I think its a great idea. I noticed the only ones that seemed to have a problem with it were old people. Mostly what i liked wasn't just the actual experiment but the fact that its a country where it could even be tried. Why can't usa be more like denmark

                          But this is sexual. It reinforces the perception that women and their breasts are sexual playthings, exposing themselves in a sexual way to lustful male motorists. Some women would find that highly offensive. Sure, men will slow down to oggle at the breasts and then speed up again. Are these girls going to be there 24/7? How is it going to work in the middle of the Danish winter?

                          People driving too fast is a serious issue that needs a serious solution - to change drivers' behaviour. Gimmicks aren't going to solve anything.

                            Sexual?? Thanks, Stu, you have just given us a brand-new insight into your mindset, after all these months of same-old, same-old Stu.

                            It's not sexual at all to me. And I bet not to other nudists either. In fact, this is the second thread about that video clip, and not one comment about it has mentioned any connection with sex.

                            Your post demonstrates one more example of the difference between people who can separate nudity from sex, and those who cannot (or at least, do not, perhaps by choice).

                              This is super cool! And you are right about not over here in America. there would be groups forming every hour saying their kids are being harmed for the rest of their lives because they saw a boob. Denmark rules.
