Apparently they’re all over Bolivia, but here in Sucre is the first time we’ve seen them. Energetic locals dressed in zebra suits ensuring people obey the road rules and that pedestrians can cross safely. They bound into the middle of the road and wave people over, exaggerate stop signals to oncoming traffic and generally go about spreading cheer.

I know you get two years in jail for squishing a vicuña. I bet one or two Bolivan drivers have contemplated how many years you get for smacking a zebra.
