San Francisco Adds Technology to Spray Pee Right Back at Public Urinators

San Francisco may have found the perfect solution to its public urination problem: technology in which the pee is sprayed right back onto the person taking a leak.

The city is coating walls in some neighborhoods with a special coating that redirects the stream right back where it came from, as seen in the video above and here:

The city got the idea from Hamburg, Germany – which uses the same technology and posted these cool signs to go with it:

Sadly, San Francisco did not add the cool signs.

Painting each wall costs the city a few hundred dollars, according to SF Gate. But, if the pilot program works, it will save on cleanup costs for the city and, more importantly, it is hilarious.
