Druids hired to cut road 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".

Chief engineer Harald Dirnbacher from Austria's motorway authority ASFINAG explained: "We were really sceptical at first and certainly didn't want people to know what we were doing, so we kept it secret."

But now the trial results are so impressive officials are spreading the scheme nationwide.

One blackspot's fatal accident rate fell from an average of six per year to nothing after the druid treatment, where they search for negative radiation with dowsing rods.
