Urine-repelling paint will soon be used at various stations in the greater Philadelphia area.
The new coating has two benefits. It is not only impervious, but it is supposed to deflect the urine back onto the culprit — a perfect urine-filled punishment.
The pee prevention plan was announced by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA), the primary transportation agency in the Philadelphia area.
Complaints of foul odors are very common for any large transit system, SEPTA spokesman Andrew Busch told local media outlet Billy Penn.
“It’s imminent. It’s coming soon,” Busch said. Trials are expected to come this fall.
The paint has been tested in San Francisco and Hamburg, Germany.
