“Its forbidden to pee here”

The everywhere sign. Plastered on every conceivable vertical surface all over the city.

I choose to translate it as “Don’t stand around here. People use this spot as a toilet so frequently, they put up a sign!  Not that the sign makes any difference:

There are signs that forbid everywhere.

Bawal Tumawid Dito. Its forbidden to cross the road here:
