So um Glasgow, we need to talk. It seems we have a bit of a um, potty training issue. As we were perusing back through news stories we found one with a rather, smelly statistic from a couple of months back. It seems that in just over a year and a half, a whizzing 8600 Glaswegians were caught by the cops using the streets as toilets. 

The Glaswegian revealed that more people were caught with their trousers down soiling the streets, than dogs. The paper reported that the majority of those caught urinating or (even more grotty) defecating in the streets, were caught in the early hours of the morning, those heading home from bars and clubs in Glasgow City Centre. The worst period for this potty behaviour was around Christmas and Hogmanay in Glasgow; in December alone, 727 ASBOs were issued by the Strathclyde Police for public urination and defecation. It seems Fresher's Week in Glasgow is also prime time for public pee-ers, with a massive 624 given sanctions last September alone. 

Now we know when you need to go, you need to go, (especially after a few bevvies) but seriously guys. Glasgow pubs and clubs have some really nice loos, (okay a few not-so-nice ones too, but hey, it's better than down some lane with the Police yelling at you, eh?). So next time you're on a Glasgow night out and closing time hits, be sure to hit the lavvy before you leave. You may save yourself, not just the 40 quid fine you'll be smacked with if you're caught, but also some seriously red cheeks...
