Re: Men relieving themselves in public

I think its illegal in urban and built up areas in most countries, however I have heard in England if you hold your arm in the air and shout that you are in pain you are allowed to take a leak.

I have seen people taking leaks on the Tube and on night buses in London, its not really very nice as the steaming stream passes under seat

Re: Men relieving themselves in public

Well in a class of children when they all put their arms up how is one to know whether they want to ask a question or take a leak?

and if it's after 10pm the fine doubles, even if you do it in the privacy of your own bathroom.
You forgot to add that if you then actually flush, they will calculate your fine based upon your income AND place you under a three-month urination ban.

Re: Men relieving themselves in public

Was no doubt in dour need following a long trip on a stolen bike while trailing a pink trolley all the way from Wetzikon. That in my books (as an exception) deserves a break.

Nope if the cops catch you, you'll get fined, it is not allowed.
men read it as: it is allowed but be sure the cops don't catch you...

Re: Men relieving themselves in public

Well I couldn't find any reference to the in pain law, but apparently, in the UK a pregnant woman can legally relieve herself anywhere she wants, including in a policeman's helmet.

Nope. 'Tis true. One of those laws they never bothered repealing like being able to tether half your goat on the common land every third Tuesday.
