Finland combats vandalism through SMS

Due to random acts of violence at rest areas along Highway 1 in western Finland, the Finnish Road Administration developed a system, which allows travelers to open automatically the doors of the restrooms by sending a text messages. On the doors of the toilets there are instructions “advising prospective users”; they have to send a text message “OPEN” to the number provided on the door and a buzzer then unlocks it.
