In Emergency,loading docks,alleys,behind dumpsters,in dumpster enclosure,between 18 wheeler trailer and a wall may serve in a bind.

FYI- these days if a LEO sees it you will get a indecent exposure charge, which will land you on a sex offender registry in 13 states.

Don't worry though Uber will take care of all those fines though right? :wink: *Sarcastically they will fight for you!

I think I mentally mapped most of my area with where I can find a clean restroom. As an over 40 female, third tree on the right just doesn't work for me. I had it happen last night. On a run from BWI to Arlington, about half way in the urge hit. Needless to say after dropp off it was offline and locate somewhere still open at that hour. Usually I keep my Starbucks app loaded to order coffee and use the restroom while they're making it.
Good idea to know where the restrooms are. What if you have to do... the other thing? I drive the late night shift when I'm out and the fast food places have all locked their doors. Denny's works, always open usually and the bathrooms are filthy but you may have no choice.

WOW! That's very different than here in NJ, although it IS very much like NYC. Every hotel I've encountered in my travels has abundant free parking, and I've never had a problem using the men's room in a hospital ER.
Here,valet keeps a few customer cars out front on the street.
They use them to drive to garage to retrieve cars for other hotel guests.

Learn the art of the maintenance pee...go during a dinner or gas break even if you don't feel the urge. You'll always be able to squeeze out a few drops and empty that bladder. No telling if your next ride is going to keep you in the car for two hours or more by distance of ride or road clogging accident. MAINTENANCE PEE.

I love it! How about some MAINTENANCE GAS as well? You never know how long is the next trip gonna be either. Nothing like low gas alarm come up when cruising!

I don't know how many of you this is feasible for, but there are plenty of small parks, little league fields, and public sporting complexes in my area that either have small, stand-alone restrooms that are always unlocked, and/or port-o-potties. I've had to avail myself of them once or twice when there were no other close options.

For me the key is to regularly empty that bladder throughout the day. Drugstores , and Starbucks are great they always seem to keep them clean. Some gas stations r good as well. As a female I always ask even if it's after-hours and haven't had any problems, yet. I also make note the 24 hr drugstores.

I've been lucky with all the highway and building construction in New Orleans.

70% of the port o let's don't have padlocks.

I pay attention to where each and every one of them are.especially if I can park nearby.

Around here, that wouldn't be the case. "indecent exposure" is a sex offense for fellows with trench coats flashing women. Public urination might be "disorderly conduct", a sanitation related offense, or at worst "open lewdness" that they pinched streakers for back in the day.

I figured out the peeing thing within the first week... now I'm close to 2000 rides. Went to Wal-Mart and bought a plastic sealable bottle ($7.00) that twists tight with a large opening for my one-eyed monster. I go less than one mile away and stop after dropping off pax, never near place of drop-off, then twist open the bottle and pee away. Whether its a small void or large, I just open my drivers side door and dump it out. Nobody knows and the chances of getting caught are less than zero. You guys aren't thinking by wasting miles driving to a 7-11 or something like that. I want to limit my miles for the little bit of $ I'm getting paid. Just keep the bottle in your glove box. I usually void after each ride so I'm always empty because u can run into a situation where ur stuck in heavy traffic with pax aboard. U have to anticipate that u could have a super-long ride at any time, so is it really worth it to blow up ur bladder?

And for those who do not know, holding ur pee spikes ur blood pressure.
