Urinators Destroy Lamp posts

Many hundreds of lamp posts have to be replaced every year due to damage done by men and dogs urinating against them. Rei-Lux, a company which checks lamp posts on behalf of municipalities, says that on the average six percent of the lamp posts checked have to be replaced. The lamp posts most at risk of being damaged are those near gardens and discotheques. Peter Kommers of the Utrecht Municipality suggests that the tax on male dogs should be raised.
