Toilet breaks when driving

Hi everyone, I’m new here, so not sure how it works; My sister’s life is very limited because she is nervous to drive anywhere incase there aren’t regular toilet stops along the way. Is there such a thing as a ‘Toilet Route Map’? Many thanks

hi, I guess it depends where you are. if it was a regular route, then you could do a plan of loos.

if your sis needs a hoist, then the fairly new, brilliant, Changing Places loos, do show them on their website.

Never used the information on this site, but might be a start.

there is an app for your phone called flush that might help too

There is another app for tablets called Wheelmate. http://www.wheelmate.com/en/ I did get a copy of the official (ie Govt sponsored) UK Atlas - The PIE Guide - and found it was so out of date it was a joke. It is still for sale as the 2008 edition! Geoff

It’s so important to know where the nearest toilet is.

I always take my radar key with me and plan routes and stops accordingly. Travelling by train takes away some of the anxiety but using the loo on a moving train can be a challenge.

petrol stations often have a subway franchise and are obliged to have toilets.

as i’m not a wheelie yet, i don’t know if they’d be appropriate.

worth a try though.

ps i bought a she-wee but the funnel part didn’t fit the other bit!

Hi Tena make a whole range of incontinence pads, which are good to have as a safety net. The MS Society can provide a card you can keep in your wallet, that explains you have MS & need to urgently use the toilet, so could be used in place like restaurants even if you’re not a customer. Dan

Thank you everybody. All very helpful. X
