A whole new definition of “drive in” in Switzerland will begin next year. And no, we’re not talking about a fast food restaurant.

Voters in Zurich approved drive-in sex booths to help make the sex industry safer and more regulated. Here’s ABC.

“The booths will be outfitted with parking spaces, alarm buttons and an on-site counselor … Beginning in January, sex workers will also have to apply for a license, register with a health insurer and purchase a ticket each night for approximately $5 before they begin soliciting customers.”

So, clients will be able to drive their cars into the sex booths instead of picking prostitutes up on the street.

The Local notes, Politicians, police, social workers and members of the public have all raised concerns about unregulated prostitution in the city centre, which they say has led to sex trafficking, safety issues, and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.”

The Daily Mail spoke with Zurich’s social welfare department about the new booths.

“Now we are going to change this, transfer it from the street, from a public to a private space to an old industrial area which belongs to the city that give us the possibility to define the rules of prostitution in this space.”

The plan will enter full force starting in 2013.
