image for Downtown merchants like new signs

(Seattle, WA) City stores exiting to alleyways are appreciative of new street placards being posted near garbage bins and back doorways.

"The 'Please Do Not P Here' signs serve a dual purpose," said one bar owner. "Drivers will know not to park there and drunks will know not to urinate illegally."

Others see it as wasteful government spending to remind citizens of laws they already should know are in place.

"It's just one more form of useless advertising," said Northwest activist Ashley White. "And from the Great Satan at that!"

Graffiti artists have been taking aim at the notices, writing in such distasteful phrases like "Puke" or converting the P to an R to read "Rape" in some of the more dangerous neighborhoods.

"Just more eye sores to block out," said Ms. White.
