Stray dogs crossing at crosswalks are being used by the Romanian traffic police in a new safety campaign to convince pedestrians to be more careful.'If they can do it, then everyone can do it. Cross on pedestrian crossings!', says the short TV spot while showing several stray dogs using zebras and pelican crossings.The dogs were filmed in real life in several Romanian cities. The example of stray dogs could prove crucial in a country where 360 people died last year because of 'pedestrian lack of discipline' according to the police. More than 1,200 were injured for the same reason. AFP PHOTO / DANIEL MIHAILESCU (Photo credit should read DANIEL MIHAILESCU/AFP/Getty Images)
