Austrian motorway bosses have hired druids to drain the negative energy from infamous accident black spots.
An initial trial conducted to see if the concept had merrit produced impressive results, now officials are rolling out the scheme nationwide in an attempt to reduce traffic accidents.
Motoroway bosses in Austria secretly hired a full-time team of druids to drain 'negative energy' from accident blackspots. The team is said to have reduced fatal accidents at one notorious crash site to zero after restoring its "terrestrial radiation".

Bad engineering doesn't answer the fact that "One blackspot's fatal accident rate fell from an average of six per year to nothing after the druid treatment" - or do people like you just look at the statement "Druids hired to cut road accidents" and base your decision on the fact that you are a "scoffing christi...
