How do you address the issue of frequent urination while driving, aside from stopping?

aside from stopping?

Are you serious?

I've got to hand it to ya - you win the prize for the most curious first post on our forum!

Just what type of response were you expecting to get from us?

If a driver can't manage his time in such a way to allow him to stop and drain his bladder every now and then, he's got way bigger problems than just a wet pair of pants.

One thing I discovered while I was training was simply cutting back on fluid intake helps. I know that sounds obvious. During my first week I was having to stop a lot more than I would have liked but I quickly realized that I was probably downing too much liquid. Obviously you want to stay hydrated but I found that instead of constantly drinking I would occasionally substitute a drink with like a hard candy or a mint so I could wet my mouth without filling my bladder.

Also, I hate to be the one to say it but if you're having too much of a problem with that sort of issue it's also important to get to go see a doctor. Sooner than later. Especially for men, I've been told that can be a sign of some fairly serious problems.

Really though, it all comes down to trip planning. Rest areas where you can get out and use a restroom without having to detour too far away from the highway are your friend.

I stopped drinking soda's, energy drinks and coffee while on the road. I also don't eat salty foods. I sip water throughout the day. Rest stops and the right off/on ramp are your friend. Some pee in a bottle while driving. I did see a product at Iowa 80, that is basically a hose connected to a container.

Aquarium cleaner/vacume with 8' of tubing. 3/4 hole in floor.

***Kidding, but one of those ideas that came up while discussing this very issue at the academy last year.

I just hang it out the window while rolling, passenger side. It's called 'gitten 'er done.'

You just squeeze a little bit out and let your pants dry, then squeeze a little bit more out, and so on. No more pesky stopping.
