POLICE are setting out to bust the myth that there is one particular car tyre you can pee on if you are caught short.
Bundaberg Police said they have received quite a number of requests from the public asking which car tyre they are allowed to urinate on without any repercussions.
The answer is none.
You are not allowed to urinate in public.
It does not matter if a car tyre is involved or not.
If it is an emergency you must ensure that you cannot be seen by passing motorists otherwise this will earn you a $113 fine.
Police recommend stopping beside some bushes or a clump of trees and walk behind them first.
Of course if a police car tyre is involved you can expect some more serious consequences.
So what about children?
Well common sense should prevail.
With young children if an effort was made to conceal the tinkle well this would be acceptable.
