The city of San Francisco is really making a name for itself lately.
Inhabitants of the Golden Gate City love their town so much, they pee all over it. The problem has gotten so out of hand that city officials have designed a way to combat rampant public urination by creating walls that actually pee back.
Public Works crews have been busy painting city walls with pee-repellent paint. When the offending urinator comes to relieve himself, look out! They had better be wearing waterproof shoes.
“We are piloting it to see if we can discourage people from peeing at many of our hot spots,” Public Works Director Mohammed Nuru told the SF Gate.
“Nobody wants to smell urine. We are trying different things to try to make San Francisco smell nice and look beautiful.”
The city spends $2 million a year cleaning up bodily fluids with power washers and steam cleaners, Nuro told CBS news. He’s hoping to cut costs with the pee-repellent walls.
But as one seemingly shameless urinator told CBS, if he knows about the paint, he’ll just go pee somewhere else.
Watch out, San Fran trees and fire hydrants.
