Others used franker language when addressing the topic.
Here's an example.

I think more public bathrooms are just a smart investment all around....as long as there are people put in place to maintain them. There are just so many extenuating circumstances that can cause any person to need to use a restroom without wanting/being able to patronize a neighborhood restaurant or convenience store. Maybe you're out on a walk with your lady after having some Indian food and bam! Your stomach starts rumbling and you have an emergency. You're in the middle of a block, a mile from your car, no extra money to buy something in a store....what do you do? Wouldn't it be nice to see a public restroom around the corner? Or say you drive for Lyft or Uber. You just finish dropping off a passenger, you've been drinking from your water bottle all day and really need to just make a quick pit stop to take a piss...boom! Public restroom.
