Drive-thru BROTHELS hailed a success after year-long trial in Switzerland
Zurich's drive-thru brothels have been hailed a success by Swiss social services, a year after they first opened.
The experiment in Switzerland's largest city began last August when the authorities opened Europe's first municipal drive-in brothel in an old industrial area.
It was hoped the initiative would slash the number of sex workers on the streets, while at the same time offering them a safer space to work. But not all of them are happy with the arrangements.
Authorities admitted that some have complained their earnings have fallen since the new initiative began, and that they are too far from city centre bars and clubs.
Running the drive-in, which cost around 2million euros ($2.6 million; £1.6million) to set up, has also proved more costly than originally thought.
