The Pit Stop Trucker’s Urinal

Truckers get paid by the mile, so for them pulling over to take a pee costs money. Apparently to get around this many truckers pee into empty milk jugs or pop bottles, and then just toss them by the side of the road, which as you can imagine causes some hellish cleanup problems.

Enter the Pit Stop Trucker’s Urinal, designed to help truckers have a more environmentally friendly (and roadside cleanup crew friendly) way to pee on the road. Basically, it’s a funnel, a tube and a jug that’s going to set you back $60. I guess the idea is you pee until this is full, and then dispose of the urine down a toilet during a scheduled rest stop.

There’s also a disposal/cleaning system, but that seems designed to be installed at rest stops or truck stops, not in the truck itself. This is no Travel John Jr.

A web site called http://WWW.TRUCKER-P.COM/TRUCKER.HTM has addressed the problem of truckers dangerously urinating directly into one gallon plastic bottles while driving at speed on our highways and then improperly disposing of the bottles at rest stops or just tossing them into out truck widows.

The whole TRUCKER-P concept is based on hospital proven devices: male condom catheters, lengths of tubing , connectors and urine holding bags of various sizes.

The danger for the truck driver peeing in a plastic bottle, after having pulled his pants down to reach his penis and stuff it in the bottle opening, while running down the road at 60 MPH, is eliminated. Using TRUCKER-P equipment, the truck driver would attach a male condom catheter before starting out so this is already in place when he wants to urinate. The catheter is attached to a tube that runs down to a large holding bag on the floor. The whole thing is convenient, easy and minimizes a potentially dangerous situation.

As the holding bag costs about $10.00, the driver will not be pitching the bag, as he would an old used gallon milk bottle, out the truck window. One bit of magic here would be to enlist the trucking companys to get involved with this program. I think this whole problem should rest with the trucking companies who have the power to change the drivers habits.
