The actions of two car passengers who appeared to lean out a car window to urinate while travelling at kmh on a Southland highway are being condemned. Angela Chilton, from Essex in England, is holidaying in New Zealand with her husband, former Invercargill man Karaan Chilton, and noticed two passengers in the vehicle ahead of them hanging out of the windows when they were travelling on State Highway 6 between Garston and Athol mid-morning on Monday. The couple saw the passengers, one of them numerous times, lean out of the car window at waist level and said they appeared to be urinating from the vehicle. She said one of them popped out the car "three to four times" while the other passenger on the opposite side stuck himself out of the window once.

The subject who is truly loyal to the Chief Magistrate will neither advise nor submit to arbitrary measures. Sometimes, you can't wait for the next gas station or rest stop or don't know when it's coming and you have to pee at the side of the road. Especially if you have kids in the car - sometimes they just can't wait. Is it illegal, even if you find some bushes or if nobody else is coming down the road? Could a little tinkle get me a criminal record?
What to do if you just can't wait until the next rest stop
Obviously, considering a certain expected amount of exertion, sweat takes care of a lot of fluid intake — but with long stages and the need to stay hydrated of paramount importance, sometimes a rider is going to have to take a leak. So how do they do it? The answer is the question is that, unsurprisingly, peeing is a rather personal thing — and different riders take different approaches.
Is it true that there is no washroom on the bus, and if you have to pee, the bus stops at the side of the road?! Actually it does happen. On one of our trips from Holguin to Guardalavaca the bus driver pulled over and several men ran off into the bushes. There was no working bathroom on the bus. Last year and this year there were toilets in our buses.
