Why do cars slow down when driving past a brothel?

Why do cars slow down when driving past a brothel? I drive daily on a road that took millions of francs to make it into a highway with a speed limit of 80. It's a perfectly nice road, beautiful scenery, not many bikes or other obstacles. So what happens? A brothel is set up in a useless restaurant and now most cars slow down to 60 when driving past. There was even a fatal motorbike accident in front of it.

One rarely sees the prostitutes hanging around outside. I know because when I drive by, I glance quickly and continue without having to let my foot off the gas pedal.

As an interesting note, there were once lost white sheep roaming around the brothel (cleverly named Porky's) but I'm quite sure it was a coincidence.

Re: Why do cars slow down when driving past a brothel?

I suspect most of them are women slowing down to check if husband's car is parked in front of brothel.

Re: Why do cars slow down when driving past a brothel?

In the countryside in the UK you often see cars with courtesy stickers in the back window that read, "I slow down for horses."
Next time you see this phenomenon look at the car windows maybe it reads, "I slow down for whores."

I used to live in Wollishofen, Zurich where there is the Petite Fleur brothel. There always seemed to be a school / kinder bus parked in its car park! That must be easy to spot who the driver is.

When I first moved to Switzerland I took my friend out for a meal and a few drinks to say thankyou for him fitting the lights in my apartment. We left Rote Fabrik because that day it was filled with crazy folks so being new to Wollishofen I said let's go for a drink in that bar that says Heineken above the door. Luckily as we were trying to open the door we saw some women chatting in the car park and then noticed the red drapes and white sash windows. Thank goodness we didn't manage to open the door. I would've felt a right tit!

... of course, interchange the final nationality with whom ever you feel fit.

I just heard that joke (Grynch's joke) many years ago, but he left the last line off (which seemed most appropriate for this thread).

Re: Why do cars slow down when driving past a brothel?

Porky's is really a brothel? Cool....I know where that is

I always thought back to when I was a kid and that was the coolest movie. And then thought it was a dumb name for a joint in the 21st century

Re: Why do cars slow down when driving past a brothel?

There was a sale on in Migros and red bulbs were real cheap so I bought a ton and fitted them in every room of my house. The other day some dumb English-speaking guy with his friend was trying to push m door in but fortunately he went away. All the other guys drive past my house slowly because they're not sure whether that's the traffic light that's red or just my porch light. There's only one guy who doesn't slow down (also Englsih speaking) and he knocked over a motorcyclist. I still haven't worked out why my wife and daughters have so much cash all of a sudden.

Re: Why do cars slow down when driving past a brothel?

I used to drive past the Kings Cross crack whores and believe me, if anything I speeded up. Equally disgusting and tragic.

How anyone would pay money for sex with someone who looks like they were in the thriler video I don't know.

The legend goes that one day on a forum somebody asked a question and now everybody slows down to see why.

Do you see how many road deaths and lost minutes you are now responsible for?

Re: Why do cars slow down when driving past a brothel?

I drive past the Petit Fleur most days taking my daughter to school. My husband and I had wondered what it was (we are relatively new to Zurich). Although, we had suspected that it was some kind of dodgey place so thanks for solving the mystery.

The kinder bus STILL parks in the car park. Its there quite often. The driver obviously has to find some way to fill his 'between jobs' time.
