If you can’t get rid of the drunks then at least give them better facilities. That seems to be the motto of European cities. Well in order to keep public sanitation healthy, this seems to be a good option. The Urilift system is a two-meter high stainless steel cylinder with three alcoves, each with a urinal, and no doors. By day, the Urilift is lowered underground for a nice clean look, and then at night, an operator hydraulically lifts the Urilift up to sidewalk level. The urinals are designed exclusively for men, and more specifically, for male drinkers. So when your tanks full, just take a leak in one of these.

The $75,000 system has been installed across the Netherlands, London and Belfast, but Victoria will be the first North American city to try them out.
