So yea, I just saw a add from a government agency in Sweden that wants people to not shower more then 5 min per day... For the simple reason that it saves energy. And they're also sending out free clocks that you can use to know when you've showered for more then 5 min

Anyhow, here's their add https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pTqf-ImJkA (99% of it is in English so you'll understand it)

*Update*

I got my shower clock today (picture in spoiler).



Hence my question of this thread


If the country you live in enforced a law where where showering more then 5 min would be illegal and stopped the water supply to be delivered to your home if you've showered for more then 5 min. Then how would you react?

The law is the law. I don't see anything fragrantly bad about it.

Showering is the most relaxing 15 minute part of my day it would make it stressful for me to rush through it.

I would cry. I mean I shower 20 mins in the morning and 20 in the evening. But it's not such a bad idea though.

There were similar laws to OP's, in the past. They are all pretty hilarious. However, there are some patterns to it. At current state where consumption is encouraged with all behaviors (example: "buy product 'X' to save energy) such abrupt law will not pass at any level.
I see people taking it to the streets, politicians getting caught with rigged timer that allows them to shower longer then the Big Bro withdrawing such a thing.

Do we have any pro economist that has awesome understanding of behavior psychology to whip out a skeletal propaganda that may theoretically make the bill pass?

Now that I think about it, my neighborhood would save a lot of water if they wash their cars less frequently and/or have a humidity sensitive lawn sprinkler.

I like taking really long showers so I would never be able to just take a 5 min shower. Even when California was in a drought I still took really long showers, I was willing to cutback water usage in other things but not when it comes to taking showers.

As a plumber I would probably find a way around it by bypassing the valve controlling this near the meter. It would cost and use up much more energy anyway for them to dig it up periodically and check the lines.

I don't use shampoo due to the damage it causes so I spend 5 minutes alone washing my hair with water.... yeah that's not happening.

I take an hour, give or take a few. Granted the water isn't on for the entirety of my shower, I would still flee from a country if they had a 5 min restriction. It's barbaric.

I shower in the blood of my enemies.

Saves water, and the environment.
