No preg­nant pee breaks

NT News - - NEWS -

PREG­NANT women in the Ter­ri­tory can be fined $432 for pee­ing in pub­lic, de­spite a ru­mour their spe­cial cir­cum­stances make them ex­empt.

The NT News asked the NT Po­lice if a preg­nant lady with a burst­ing blad­der was al­lowed to re­lieve her­self in pub­lic, and was told a per­son could be is­sued an In­fringe­ment No­tice for Of­fen­sive Be­hav­iour in a Pub­lic Place “re­gard­less of gen­der or fer­til­ity”.

An NT Po­lice spokesman also con­firmed it was il­le­gal for a per­son to uri­nate on one of their own car tyres while in pub­lic, how­ever, he said a per­son was free to pee on their car in pri­vate.

“As long as it is not in pub­lic and it is their own ve­hi­cle. The choice of tyre would be up to the owner,” he said.

“It is an eas­ier choice for mo­tor­cy­cle rid­ers but more dif­fi­cult for road train driv­ers.”
