A city in central China has developed free parking spaces reserved for drivers who to use the toilet.

Spaces have been marked in yellow on main roads in the city of Xi’an, close to 50 of the city’s public toilets.

Each one is designated as a “special toilet use” space and there’s a 15 minute time limit for drivers who park in them, so anyone who tries to take advantage of the spots to go shopping will be fined.

The city’s traffic police are also asking people to report any cars that occupy the spaces long-term.
One local driver told China Daily that he was pleased to find a place where he could pause for a quick toilet break without having to pay.

And this is only the first stage of the city’s plan for loo-friendly spaces.

Xi’an has more than 1,300 public toilets and traffic police say they’re looking to create more reserved parking so that people can easily make use of the facilities.
