Horses and ponies painted to look like zebra will appear on Friday on Moscow's streets in a bid to remind drivers to adhere to traffic rules, Russia's traffic police said on Thursday.
The traffic police's "Safe zebra crossings" campaign is a part of the larger attempt to ensure children's safety as the new school year begins.
The animals, painted with natural pigments, will be displayed at crossings in central Moscow.
Young pedestrians will have the chance to ride the horses, as well as learning vital traffic safety rules.
