Michigan hopes to keep drunks off the road with the help of a special message in men’s bathrooms featuring an attention-getting woman’s voice.
Talking deodoriser cakes for urinals had been distributed to Michigan Licensed Beverage Association members, state officials said. A recorded message reminds men who step up to the urinals to call a cab or a friend, if needed, to get home safely.
“Not only do we want to turn some heads and get people talking, we hope everyone takes the message to heart,” Michael Prince, the director of the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning, said.
The motion-activated messages are part of a Fourth of July education and enforcement effort and have been used in other states as well. – Sapa-AP
