Can you imagine these at City Park, Main street or the Riverwalk??? What do you think Pueblo?
Is this a good idea, or just gross? Officials in Paris recently started installing SIDEWALK URINALS all over the city to discourage guys from going #1 on the street, or on the sides of buildings. And the urinals are in VERY public places.
They're about the size of a mailbox, with a big opening in the front. So guys can walk up, unzip, and have at it. And not everyone thinks they're a good idea.
There's been an UPROAR from people especially since some of the urinals are in tourist spots. There's even one near the Notre-Dame cathedral.
They've been installing them since last year. So they're not brand new. But they're popping up in more places now, and people don't like it.
There's a layer of straw inside to soak up the urine and help with the smell. Then it's used as compost in public parks. So they are eco-friendly, if that matters.
They also have flower beds on top of them, so they're not such an eyesore.
So is this a good idea or not? Well, according to a new survey a lot of Americans say YES. 46% said they'd support having them in their own city . . . 27% said it's a bad idea . . . and another 27% aren't sure.
