A boat cruise along the River Seine is one of most popular ways to see Paris, but angry locals are worried that a new installation may spoil the experience.

Bright-red, fully exposed, urinals have been placed across the city to reduce peeing on the streets.

Other than the unsightly and probably smelly factor of the urinals themselves, I could see them being an indecent exposure charge waiting to happen :eek:

Yeah, I could see "cocky" guys being very casual about when they got their wedding tackle out or put it away!  :evil:
