In Paris, authorities are taking an unusual approach to combat the scourge of public urination: Make urination even more public.
The city is experimenting with completely exposed, eco-friendly urinals.
The devices are called "Uritrottoir," which combines the words for urinal and pavement. They're not at all subtle. They're bright red and in heavily trafficked areas — for example, directly next to the Seine near the Notre Dame Cathedral.
And if there's any confusion, a large white and red sign with a red arrow and a cartoon of a man peeing probably clears it up.
