'Abbey Road' Album Cover Saves Lives

One of the most iconic album covers of all time, The Beatles' "Abbey Road" photo graces merchandise of all kinds, and now it graces public service announcements against jaywalking in Calcutta. About 140,000 people die in road accidents each year in India, the highest rate in the world. So the new billboards, showing John, Paul, George and Ringo flawlessly demonstrating the proper way to use a crosswalk and bearing the slogan, "If they can, why can't you?" is needed. Impressively, since the posters went up, accident rates have fallen by 20 percent.
