A recent news says, "Motorists using Ireland's new motorway network can expect to find themselves thirsty or bursting for the lavatory because the government hasn't any money left to build roadside service stations.

It was unacceptable for drivers not to have anywhere stop for the toilet or a coffee for the entire 250 km (155 mile) journey between Ireland's two biggest cities Dublin and Cork for example."

Ref: Drive from sea to sea, but don't stop to pee.

I was wondering if the motorists will now carry a polythene bag with them to ease them when needed. Do you think it will be a warm welcome at destination?

The call of nature must be answered.
Drink and pee, eat and maybe ... have a rest.
If not, we must find a hidden corner, or not? (I am sorry saying that).

Polythene bags are banned. Shame on you

The mortorists can consider carrying a paper bag. Whistle

But paper bags can go damp and wet. It is risky. How about metal cans?

wow.... I can see a lot of problems with this.... being a woman, I can't just whip it out and relieve myself...and do you know how difficult it is for us to pee in a cup or bottle or can... especially in the car??? Now... if you've ever experience "holding it" while stuck in traffic for over two hours, you know how painful this can be... and this might add a bit of frustration while driving...which will subsequaintly (sp) cause accidents or road rage.. Hmmmmm at least have porto potties on the side of the highway.... Not to mention exhaust from being on the road...one gets tired and swerves into traffic when he dozes off??? Unbelieveable...

My two cents.

I was wondering ...

What about something like a "pee patrol" ??

In case of "pee emergency" call 911 ... and "pee patrol" will be for your help.

Or maybe this can be included in AAA contract.

Maybe an imaginative entrepreneur can present a solution. Something like a "pee mobile" .... that for a reasonable price can take care of your necesity.

I don't know ..., but I am sure that they can solve it.

Recommend you observe the situation in case that can be duplicate in the States....

P.S.: In the meantime .... probably the best solution are diapers ... (arg!!)

or plastic containers.

In the meantime ....
I remember that years ago trains had toilet, of course, but the toilet had not a container, then a hole under the lavabo made possible the elimination of the … pees ...
However, I know that it could create other problem on the way you leave behind.
I don’t know.

What about small children? My daughter is newly potty trained and I'm terrified to take her anywhere that takes longer than an hour to drive to, for fear that she won't tell me that she has to go and will have an accident.

Oh, bureaucracy...

I have experienced it many a times. Being a male, my hands help me in holding it tight at times.

But the practical probelm with ladies seems to be unsurmountable.

Disposal of liquid wastes is no problem, just install a tube that exits the floor of the vehicle. Fear not women, female rock climbers have a solution for you.

Female rock climbers, they can climb rocks and still use one of those things???

risa,

We took the potty chair, a bucket with a tight-fitting lid, and a big garbage sack (to store everything) with us on trips. Little kid's kidneys don't seem as bashful as those of some older kids and adults; the open-air toilet wasn't a problem.

Great ideas, animalfarm!

But I think the "Pee Patrol" (aka the "PP's") would need a counterpart--the "Pooper Troopers"; they, of course, would be driving P.T. Cruisers.

So as not to get confused, the pee patrol could be further designated as "Response Unit #1," leaving the Pooper Troopers to be "Response Unit #2."

And the "pee-mobile"? I'm not quite sure how that would work. Maybe those inventors could begin with a "poop-mobile"* that could funnel the poop directly into the car's fuel tank. Somebody has already figured out how to make a car that runs on manure, haven't they?

It would give a whole new meaning to "gassing up the car"; little boys would be in fart joke heaven.

*Not to be confused with the Pope-mobile.

Peeteen! Instead of canteen. Pee on wheels. For a small charge of course. Or maybe more, I mean carting all that...

Apologies to Mel: Maybe the "Piss Boy" could lend a ahem...hand?

Or, do as I did in my college days...Pee back into the same container that casued the problem in the first place...stop? I don't stop!

A flashback to an old Ren and Stimpy cartoon:

"Don't whizz on the electric fence!" a game for the entire family....make some changes. Take turns stopping to whiz, and the last one to get caught is the weiner..I mean winner.

This is quite funny, and senseless thing.
They can put warning sign like this, (150 miles instead of 22 though):




And signs like this will be taken very seriously:

I remember a graffiti, my friend saw in a public washroom. There was a line drawn quite high on the wall, and the message read - If you can reach this line, the fire department needs you!
