  2. It is not uncommon in Western countries to have a law that forbids you to urinate in public. If you are not sure if they have such a law in your country, try it when you see a policeman around :) Normally there is just a fine for it, no jail.

    It is also not uncommon that towns in Canada have a bylaw regarding snow clearance. Usually something like that you must clear the snow from the sidewalk outside your house at least by a day or two after snowfall. Also punishable by fine.
