STAHLSTOWN, Pa. (AP) -

A Pennsylvania woman says she can see drivers who pull off the side of a highway relieving themselves near her backyard, and state police have been asked to increase patrols.

The woman, Crystal King, tells WTAE-TV (http://bit.ly/1pFDTKa ) that her backyard in Stahlstown, about 50 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, is separated from the Pennsylvania Turnpike by only a short fence.

King's 11-year-old son and other children in her yard can see people who pull over to relieve themselves instead of using rest areas.

King says one woman got angry when King yelled at her to stop and wound up throwing the human waste at her.

Turnpike officials say they've spoken to King and have asked police for more patrols.
