San Francisco Street Lamp falls on account of Urine Corrosion

  In the United States, last week, a street lamp fell unto a car because the base was corroded by human urine and dog feces.  I believe the motorist was not severely hurt but was very close to getting killed. Now streetlamp bases are being checked for corrosion by city inspectors.  The city government recommends that if someone has to urinate in the street, they should use a fire hydrant because it is made of cast iron.
