Shenzhen public urinal users face fine for poor aim
 
Officials in Shenzhen, China, will fine public toilet users 100 yuan (£10;$16) if they are deemed to have failed to urinate accurately in city facilities.

 
New laws that come into force next month in the southern city do not specify what amount of spilled urine would be classed as a violation.
 
The move has provoked derision and debate in local newspapers and on China's version of Twitter, Weibo.
 
Critics suggested toilet inspectors would be needed to enforce the rules.
 
The regulations were designed to curb the "uncouth use of a public toilet", a city government official told the AFP news agency.
 
The Beijing Times carried a commentary calling into question the necessity of making a law on something that could "be simply guided by social consensus".

If I remember correctly, a similar law exists in Singapore.

 

edit: I've just looked it up. It's an offence to fail to flush a public toilet after use in Singapore.

Nothing worse than having to wade across the river Styx just to take a leak.

Brilliant idea, it should be done everywhere.

 

Of course, that means paying someone to stand in the toilets and watch people pee...

There's a simple solution for those who don't want to be watched while they urinate of course: Sit down to urinate.

You don't sit on squat toilets and it's a bit hard not to be watched when many cubicles don't even have doors.

How can you enforce a law when you don't know the limits? Just make them up as you go?
