(PCM) The walls are fighting back in San Francisco, at least when it comes to public urination! The city has now installed new urine resistant walls that will actually repel urine back at the person that chose to urinate in public.
There are now nine public walls in the city that have been painted with urine resistant paint that causes the urine to spray back splashing all over the culprits pants and shoes leading to quite an embarrassing scenario. Currently, the city of San Francisco spends about $14 million per year steam cleaning the waste off of the public walls and streets. They feel the new urine resistant walls are a perfect way to fight back and cut spending.
The walls are adorned with signs that read “Hold it! This wall is not a public restroom. Please respect San Francisco and relive yourself in an appropriate place.” The sign does not mention anything about the walls being coated in urine resistant paint, so anyone that chooses to violate the sign will be in for quite a surprise.
It seems that pubic urination is quite a problem in the city of San Francisco as it has actually left some of the cities streets completely soaked in pee. Public urination was completely banned in the city back in 2002, but still continues to be an issues despite fines in upwards of $500 for violations.
Nothing like a surprise golden shower to make the public urinators in San Francisco clean up their act for good.
