Old Intersection Soliciting Post

One topic that never seems to go away is intersection solicitation.  The Drive and Sign post below rekindled this oldie.  Here is a post from January of 2013 that discusses it and links to some of Jim's old posts on the subject.  Enjoy this walk down memory lane.

I think the County should enact a permit and fee for intersection soliciting.
I live off Hugh Ward and see these group almost every weekend.
Except for the Firemen the people who solicit are not from here.

You have to have a permit. Personally, I believe if you have your child in a sport, etc. then YOU should pay for it! My child plays and I don't expect anyone else to pay for it. If you can't afford it, then don't play in the select leagues. It is also a learning experience for the kids -- teach them financial responsibility and not expect handouts for everything they want to do. You sometimes have to pick and choose.

I live off of Hugh Ward and get SO tired of people begging for money at that intersection. Seems like it is every Saturday morning. Agree with the comment above- make these kids DO something for the money. Wash cars, mow yards, heck sell candy. Don't expect for people to just hand it to you for summer camp, etc. Not to mention last Saturday, I swear I almost ran over a young girl there who stepped right infront of my car as I was turning on to Hugh Ward. It's not safe for these kids to be standing in the street.

I agree!! Parents that want to put their kids in sports need to foot the bill or at least provide a service. Over-privileged suburban kids playing soccer is NOT a charity.

Requiring or purchasing a permit does NOT remove the danger element at these intersections. STOP ALL the collections NOW!!
