Pay toilets were not intended to clear a profit but to control vandalism and loitering and to defray cleanup costs. Because mens urinals were always free, there was a protest by women regarding inequality. The pay johns went away during the 1970s because of public pressure and/or legislation.
In recent years, pay toilets have been reapppearing as stand alone facilities on streets and sidewalks. This new breed of pay toilets usually costs 25 cents to use and is self cleaning. Most of the cost of maintaining the toilets id paid for by advertising revenue and not from the user fees. *** Edited 8/21/2008 3:55:41 AM UTC by Arthur Bahl***

Technically it couldn't happen.
Ohio was one of the states where pay toilets were banned in the 70's when the big backlash happened. I assume that ban still stands.
I remember when Conneaut had pay toilets. That was in the late 70's early 80's...
