    Urine Trouble: What Chicago Streets Run Yellow Because People Need to Pee
    Maybe Cubs games have gotten so exciting that fans can't hold it until they get home. Maybe it's all those overflowing urinals at Wrigley Field from earlier in the season. Or maybe it's more proof of that old saying: You don't buy beer; you rent it.

Public Urination Hot Spots Puddle Near CTA Train Stops, Bar Districts (MAP)

Since 2013, police issued 77 tickets at 940 W. Addison that netted $20,750 in fines.

This article has 8 other Chicago locations (Show)

Police officers wrote 59 public urination tickets in the alley east of the L tracks at 22 E. Roosevelt Road netting $18,400 in fines.

In the last two years, police wrote 30 tickets raking in $5,760 in fines at 1514 N. Milwaukee.

Anderson said the nearby public peeing probably happens about as frequently as it did in the alley behind City Sole’s last location at the crossroads of North, Milwaukee and Damen, a six-corner intersection some locals call “The Crotch."

In Englewood, Preston Higgins told me he knew all too well that the alley between the CTA Green Line stop and the convenience store where you can get a can of beer for two bucks at 6316 S. Ashland doubles as an unofficial public toilet.
