"Stubborn as a ram", say Russians about people who violate road rules. In order to reinstate the good name of male sheep, civil activists in the Russian town of Lipetsk have decided to prove that rams are more clever than some of the drivers and pedestrians.   

The idea of sucn event belongs to local NGO "School of domestic pedestrian". 4-years old ram named Khvostik was leased from the Lipetsk zoo for one day. Organizers sure that Khvostik gave a great example of crossing the roads safely.

There will be other "non-serious" events, which will take plece in Lipetsk under aegis of the World Helath Organization's road rules awareness program "Life is more important than speed".
