ABRUZZO, Italy, July 27 (UPI) --
Italy's highest court has thrown out the conviction and fine of a prospective customer who slowed down for streetwalkers in Abruzzo.
The city's mayor instituted fines of between 250 and 500 euros ($660) for drivers who slow down to cruise prostitutes walking on city streets. A man who appealed his sentence to Italy's Court of Cassation had his sentence overturned, TheLocal.it reported Friday.
The court did not offer a reason for overturning the fine.
