The best places in Switzerland to avoid peeing in public

Geneva has fined an unemployed cook 200 francs (plus SFr 150 administration charges) for "carefully" peeing in a park, but some other cities are less expensive (If you can hold it that long...)

The relevant department in Geneva states: "Yes, we are very strict and will continue to be so, because this behaviour is unacceptable and will not be tolerated" The Geneva officials are also very efficient: in January alone, they caught 55 wild willy wavers within the city limits. Unfortunately for the cook, Geneva distributes the highest fines for openly urinating. Only Bern also requires 200 francs, all other cities significantly less.

In Basel and Solothurn the charges are 50 francs. In St. Gallen, Weinfelden and Zurich 60 francs. In Neuchâtel they (don't) get away with 80 francs, in Lucerne, Fribourg, Delémont and Biel expect 100 francs. Lausanne fines 120 francs, and Sion 150 francs.

It might be worth keeping that last empty bottle and avoid any accidents on the way home!

Re: The best places in Switzerland to avoid peeing in public

There was a thread on this forum about peeing in Zurich. That gave me an idea for a blog or maybe just for another "Zurich toilets" thread. I've been since taking pictures (of the ladies rooms) everywhere I pee. Aleydis's peeing history coming soon.

Re: The best places in Switzerland to avoid peeing in public

Is that a deportable offence under DSI?

Maybe it would be a serious offence if the willy waving could be observed by a police officer.

I'll let you add to the newspaper's research: there could be progress made in Tessin, as nothing about cities there...

Yes, if you wear a long skirt you might get away with it... but not if you use a Pibella,

Re: The best places in Switzerland to avoid peeing in public

The Pibella is Swiss and of course the cheapest after delivery & tax.

One thing ladies might forget is that with these devices you can visit a filthy public toilet and not have to clean the seat first...

Re: The best places in Switzerland to avoid peeing in public

If peeing in the street is OK for you chaps- we women should all have the same right, no?

EF friends lived in the centre of Neuchâtel for some years- and the smell of *iss at week-ends and especially at Fête des Vendanges, was absolutely diabolical and would even waft up to their apartment on 3rd floor. YUK- the smell of stale pee makes me heave

In the UK a pibella is called a 'sheewee'...

So he left the car with emergency lights on and went to take a piss nearby, seems to me like he didn't use an acceptable spot. The police was probably interested in the car.
