The reason public toilet seats have a gap at the front is to allow women to wipe their perineal area after they use the toilet without contacting the seat.

Basically the gap in the toilet seats is there as required by code and is there to help people clean up better after using the toilet.

The capital city that has the most public toilets is Madison Wisconsin.

Madison, WI, is the US city with the most toilets per 100k.

The country with the highest density of public bathrooms is Iceland: 56 toilets per 100,000 population.

Wakefield is the UK city with the most restrooms per 100,000 people (35) and per 100km2 (130).

Berkshire, Merseyside, and Greater Manchester are tied as the counties with the fewest toilets per 100k population (three).

Madison, WI, is the US city with the most toilets per 100k (35).

Mississippi and Louisiana each have just one restroom per 100k population, the worst-served states in America.

Madison, the capital city of Wisconsin, lies west of Milwaukee. It’s known for the domed Wisconsin State Capitol, which sits on an isthmus between lakes Mendota and Monona.

The Wisconsin Historical Museum documents the state’s immigrant and farming history.

The city's paved Capital City State Trail runs past Monona Terrace, a lakefront convention center designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Madison, the state capital of Wisconsin, is said to be one of the most quintessentially American cities.

It's also home to a vibrant cultural scene, with popular events such as as the wonderful Rhythm and Booms and the huge annual firework and music festival that includes fly-pasts by air force jets.

The gap at the front of public toilet seats is to make it easier for women to wipe after peeing.
