To stop public urination, ‘pissing tankers’ now patrol the streets of Mumbai

India has a wet problem. And it has nothing to do with their droughts. Years of campaigns, big and small, have failed to stop grown men from urinating in public at anywhere and any time they feel like it. Even setting up more public urinals and imposing huge fines didn’t stop the random splattering, so to speak. As government officials scratch their heads for a better solution, a new anti-public urination activist group called the Clean Indian has taken matters into their own hands, and literally too.

They are sending out trucks to patrol the streets of Mumbai. These ‘pissing tankers’, as they are called, carry gallons of water and men who don on masks to conceal their identity. Every time these masked men spot someone urinating by the road-side, they stop to unleash torrents of water on the offender. It’s certainly an unusual way of melting out punishment by “peeing” on those who insist on breaking the law.
