‘Just desserts’ for Swiss drivers

‘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.’
