I've noticed more & more men doing this all over the borough over the last year or so. Disgusting isn't the word, Haringey is rapidly becoming the cesspit of London.
I've seen someone also peeing on the street. Not good. Makes you wonder what the world is coming to...
It's true that a very large number of men (and, less frequently, women) seem to have embraced the idea of Duckett's Common as a latrine.
New public toilets needed?
Doubt if these scumbags would use them? There's always somewhere to go if desperate, Costa Coffee, pub, bookies etc rather than just peeing in open view
Also there are public toilets on Langham Road as part of the bus station (not listed by Haringey).
As for discouragement, perhaps the anti-littering wardens have it on their list of to-dos?
That's if they are allowed to.
New public toilets - filed under The Aerodynamics of Pork, judging by this from Haringey's web page on 'Fantastic Toilets and Where to Find Them' -
There are many challenges facing us in providing public toilets, such as:
Frequently see men peeing on my street, by the doctor's surgery car park. I always make some sort of disapproving comment but they don't care. Also, getting your penis out in public can be misconstrued, as the poster suggests, and adds to the threatening environment for everyone. It's not legal, but unless the police see it happening they can't prove who left the puddle of urine.
Income stream... Incoming stream more like!! I had to smile at that one!!
Good idea Emma. I am fed up of having to live in such a filthy environment because scum like this are allowed to get away with it. If the council spotted a way of making money maybe they would take this up
I agree, it's gross especially when young children are around. Just a suggestion - how about photographing it on your phone when you see it and emailing it to the police?
