Oh My God.... Denmark has come up with a new innovation to curb speeding on it's roads.... It's called 'Da Bikini Bandits'

Check the Video here: http://www.speedbandits.dk/

I hope I don't get in trouble for sharing this info but I have to say this is one bold campaign. See it for yourself and then tell me what you think?

Can anyone from Denmark confirm this campaign

Cheers

I haven't heard of this before.. Gotta check it out to see if its true


It looks like it is real though. They have put the "Danish Road Safety Council's" logo on there and the footage is definately from Copenhagen.

OG DET VAR DANMARK....

Apparently this was done as a legitment 'public service' advertisement, in the style of a news story piece, to deal with a serious problem. Defenitely gets my attention as well as clever and maybe getting the point across. Perhaps we could do something like that here (USA), but not with topless models to get the attention needed to curb speeding here.

Fake as in it's nothing the ministery of traffic came up with and as in "no, it's not gonna be permanent". To me, it looks like something these chicks came up with to get attention more than anything else. "I don't care what people think"? Uhh... okay...

How can you possibly be so sure?

I just talked to a classmate who told me that he saw one of them a few days ago. Of course its not permanent, its a campaign. Nothing in life is permanent  Wink

Sorry but it is not fake.

Amazing.

And in Sweden, a couple of years ago, they had to remove the ads from H&M because they were distracting male drivers, and hence to be considered a danger to traffic.

Because there has been nothing about this from the ministery of traffic, that's why  Wink

Sorry, but yeah, it's fake. In the sense that they made it seem official and permanent in the clip. I never said these attentionwh*res never existed (and I really don't care that your classmate saw one- does he want a medal for that?), I'm just saying this isn't a campaign created by the ministery.

Good because people would think that you are mad if you did.

Why? Did he ask for a medal? You should care, because it proves that they didn't only stand there because of the video clip but also stand there while not being filmed.

Read your point? That is the first time you mention anything about whether this is made by the ministry or not  Wink Easy way to get out of trouble, don't you think?
I repeat:
Just because this campaign isn't made by the ministry doesn't make it fake  Smile

If you click on this link:

http://www.sikkertrafik.dk/moduler/speedbandits/default.html

It will direct you to the same website.

Also note that under 'About' it says:
"This movie was made by the Danish Road Safety Council and aims to draw attention to speed signs and speed limits in Denmark. Despite a decrease in speed violations, 7 out of 10 Danes still exceed the speed limit on a regular basis. Respecting the speed limits is the simplest way to save lives."

and this page:
http://www.sikkertrafik.dk/

is their official website. Do you see the connection?
In other words: This campaign is NOT fake.
Sorry DragoGoalie, but you completely misunderstood it

LOL! wanna start a competition about who is better at comprehending danish?

It says that they are not responsible for what is being written on SOME of the WEBSITE. NOT on the streets. And what they are referring to is links directing to websites outside sikkertrafik.dk. Speedbandits has a dedicated website within sikkertrafik.dk, which means that Rådet For Større Færdselssikkerhed has approved Speed Bandits.

(sorry but)you lose.

An F+ for trying though

btw nice Danish language skills anyway

The guy who is interviewed is called 'Bent Koch Hansen'. This doesn't exactly add credibility to the story.

Well it is an authentic Danish name. There's even a girl in my class with the last name 'Koch'

There's also a guy in my class with the last name 'Bang'

Bent is a rather normal name as well.
So the guy's name has nothing do to with the credibility of this.
Try googling either Bent or Koch, and you will see that it is true.
