Well obviously many people ignore these notices as, for example today, I found myself staring at an assortment of turds and tampons, and it was only 7:30 pm. Go at 10, and then the place really stinks (my experience is with platforms 21/22) and the mice start coming out...
Mice ? wishful thinking ! It is RATS !! Zurich downtown is homes to 10'000s of rats ! (btw. S7 and S5 are my lines also)

Nobody wants to be caught with their pants down sat on an out of control toilet now, do they?
In the old times, conductors detecting a toilet occupied while in the station, shook the door and slammed at the door until the culprit got out with some meagre excuse but being told what NOT to do

Yep...the world out there seems to have this opinion that the Swiss are really clean, but the truth is, they are messy and lazy like all other nationalities and make a mess of the cities. The only difference is that the state employs more people to do the cleaning up.
Looks like you haven't lived in many countries yet.

I'm constantly amazed at how many people here go around clearing up other people's rubbish. Most Swiss genuinely care about having a clean and beautiful country and do their utmost to keep it that way.
