Prostitutes in the red light district in Basel, Switzerland, are wearing roller skates so they can escape from police.

One of the girls working in the area said: “You can get away from police patrols more quickly that way.”

She told Swiss magazine 20 min: “If you want to rob one of your tricks, you’re off in a flash.”

Police in Basel say dozens of prostitutes are working the streets of the city on inline skates, and the number is increasing.
