Bonn, the former West German capital, has introduced a parking meter for prostitutes, a first in Germany, in order to tax those who just work the streets, a city spokeswoman said Wednesday."We expect to get some 200,000 euros ($288,000) per year from the meter," Isabelle Klotz told AFP.The meter, which looks like one used by drivers for parking their car, was inaugurated at the weekend in an industrial area, near the centre of town, used by prostitutes to solicit clients.

Brilliant!

I'm guessing that prostitution is legal there?

[sigh]

I'll withhold comment until I see the Mother Government people come on here defending it. This is right up there with the wonderful lottery and all the 'good' it does in education.

I think it's a good idea.
If they are going to be on the streets making money, why not tax them?

Yeah sure now some chick is going to skip the fee while under surveillance, get charged with tax evasion and end up in the can.

This is stupid and people don't really need anymore taxes......but it seems the tax man is taxing everything he can nowadays. Including cow farts!!
