DETROIT — Michigan is hoping to keep drunks off the road with the help from a special message in men’s bathrooms featuring an attention-getting woman’s voice.
The state said Monday that talking urinal-deodorizer cakes have been distributed to Michigan Licensed Beverage Association members Wayne County, including Detroit. A recorded message will play reminding men who step up to the urinals to call a cab or a friend, if needed, to get home safely. And suggest they wash their hands.
The messages are part of a statewide Fourth of July education and enforcement effort.
Talking urinal cakes have been used in other states for similar efforts.
