Reich Turn

Road safety chiefs in Romania have been rapped for using Adolf Hitler in a poster campaign for safer driving.

Hitler, toppled Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and Russia's brutal communist leader Joseph Stalin all feature in a series of ads showing them as car crash victims.

With their faces plastered against a car windscreen, the ad's tag line reads: "Life isn't usually like this. Most victims are innocent. Drive safely - save a life."

But the ads have been criticised by psychology experts who say they could encourage drivers to become hostile to pedestrians,

"If you see Adolf Hitler when a person is crossing the road in front of you, you might feel like speeding up, not braking," said one.
