New Orlean's New 'Potty Ordinance'

Are new ordinances the answer to the surge in public urination in 'adult playgrounds' such as Las Vegas and New Orleans?

"The problem appears most acute in New Orleans and Las Vegas, two cities that sell themselves, more than any others, as anything-goes destinations... In Las Vegas, workers descend on downtown alleys once a week to spray odor-eating bacteria. In New Orleans, a similar steam-cleaning mechanism is used to combat the stench. And last month, the City Council approved a law dubbed the 'potty ordinance,' designed to stop public urination by increasing the number of restrooms available to drinkers."
