    This is the kind of Middle-Eastern news I can get behind.

  9. I’m trying to pinpoint what decade Lebanon has reached today. They echo flight attendants who were mostly sex objects until the 70s and 80s.

  11. Was this done with the explicit intention to slow down traffic?

    Seems like an obvious waste and not even that practical. =x

    Wouldn't it lead to more traffic accidents due to drivers loosing attention for traffic related issues as they are rather looking at the women.

    Kinda funny that he says women are free to be sexy or not, yet these shorts are probably demanded from the chief or whoever else. If they are so free why can't they choose what to wear.
    Outside of that, clearly for shock and eye candy. She wears no gear, heavy make-up, etc. .

    You can almost justify this. People in Dubai with super/hyper cars, you need something to potentially keep up with them.

    I can see why.

    No idea if this is ultimately good/bad for representation but for sure it’ll slow up your average male driver.

    Ah yes, the only dichotomy for women that exists: either they're showing skin or they're ugly.

    That said if the weather there is as shitty as it is here I wouldn't be upset about shorts. The dudes stuck in trousers are getting the raw deal.

    The title "Putting female traffic police in short shorts" makes it sound like they're forcing women cops to wear stuff.

    What's actually happened is they've hired a bunch of university students to direct traffic for the summer, and had them wear shorts as a press-gimmick.

    Mayor comes across as a massive creep. The whole thing seems very condescending. If it were a bunch of male university students they wouldn't be put in short shorts.

    It’s pure PR. Literally only there to look cool for tourists, raise interest in potential recruits and to give politicians and other elite guests luxurious ride-alongs. Same reason they have the so-called ”hoverbike”:

    Their actual patrol cars are just your basic SUVs. Chevys, Toyotas, Nissans, same as anywhere else in the region.

    Laughing because you managed to get away from the cops in your souped-up supercar. They'll catch you one day GHG, with attractive traffic cops wearing short shorts, and you'll never see it coming.

    This was a PR move using auxiliary hires, and the discussion here hasn't been productive.
