The roadside rewards may have safe drivers licking their lips
Traffic police in Switzerland have been handing out sweet rewards during a 24-hour "thank you" to safe drivers.
Motorists in the western region of Fribourg can expect a traditional gift of Swiss chocolate - but only if they pass roadside checks.
The aim is to reward good drivers, many of whom may have been pulled over more than once during a six-month campaign in the wake of a number of accidents.
The 100g chocolate bars are embossed with the police force coat of arms.
Police in the Fribourg canton clearly believe the carrot - or in this case the chocolate - is better encouragement to safe driving than the stick.
But beware drivers without tax, insurance, or licence, or those who may have been drinking - they can expect the full weight of the law - and not just today, but all year round.
