‘Drinking and Driving Is Not Cool’ Say Talking Urinal Cakes

Talking Urinal Cake
Michigan Live

If you’re in a bar in Michigan in the next few days and step into the men’s room to answer the call of nature, don’t be surprised if the urinal talks to you.

No, not because you’ve had one too many (unless you have), but because you’re peeing on one of the talking urinal-deodorizer cakes being put in place to remind you not to drink and drive.

As part of a statewide Fourth of July education and enforcement effort, the state has distributed the oddities to bars and restaurants in several Michigan counties. Cops say since most drunk drivers are young men, it makes sense to speak directly to them when they’re, shall we say, a rather captive audience. And that’s where the urinal cakes come in.

“We are always looking for different and unique ways to get our message to the people that we’re trying to reach, those people most likely to get behind the wheel drunk,” said Melody Kindraka, a spokeswoman for the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning.

Michigan isn’t the first state to use them, but no matter where you are during any holiday, just remember to call a cab or enlist the help of a sober friend if you need assistance getting home safely.
