Wee-resistant wall paint is causing a splash in Hamburg

The paint directs the spray back from whence it came.

RESIDENTS OF HAMBURG’S party district St Pauli are so fed up with people peeing in the streets that they’ve decided to take drastic action.

They’ve coated the busiest walls with a pee-resistant paint that directs the spray back from whence it came.

They’ve also placed warning signs around the city bearing the slogan ‘We pee back’.

Harsh but fair. What do you think, is it ok to take a quick slash in a street corner at night?

Poll Results:

No. Never and never. (2536)
No, but I still do it (1524)
Yes, it washes away, what's the harm? (1025)
