In most jurisdictions.  So is sleeping on a public bench in many
Countermeasures are hostile to those who would otherwise commit
offences.  Which is why the wikipedia article considers uncomfortable
benches and walls that discourage urination to be hostile architecture.

Speed limits are also hostile to people who like to drive fast for example.

I'm not seriously suggesting we map them this way but speed bumps are
technically hostile architecture. :)
