The mayor of Fort Lauderdale thinks that there's a huge problem with sex in public restrooms down there. From 365gay:
Naugle wants the city to buy a portable bathroom called a 'robo-john' and have it placed on the beach at Sebastian Street an area popular with gay sunbathers.
The 'robo-john' allows occupants to stay inside for only a short time before the door opens.
Talk about your overkill. This would probably affect more people who just need a little extra time in the stall than those who are having sex in them (especially since the local police are saying that there isn't any evidence of sex actually happening in the stalls). And at a quarter of a million dollars, these toilets seem like more of a manifestation of someone's paranoia than a solution to a perceived problem.
