Quentin Willson, motoring journalist and former Top Gear presenter, insists he has nothing to be ashamed of when he pulls over to use a lay-by. You are driving along an unfamiliar country road. If the problem is that the ladies room line is too long, ask a guy friend to escort you into the mens room. Tell a member of the school staff that it's an emergency and all the bathrooms are occupied. You can pee on the floor as a last resort. A harsher approach is to charge defendants with indecent exposure or public lewdness, which are crimes that may require convicted defendants to register as a sex offender.
They probably have their own bathroom that they would allow you to use.
Is urinating in public ever acceptable?
Get a cup or bottle and throw a jacket over your lower body. But you can be arrested and charged with a misdemeanor for doing this in all 50 states. The zero-tolerance stance is backed by Raymond Boyd Martin, managing director of the British Toilet Association, which represents the UK lavatory industry. If you are near a local park or a dirt road, then you should try to pee here as it is less likely that someone will hear you. If you are on a long car ride, plan to stop every hours to use the bathroom. Respect the city and cultural norms of your surroundings.
