Jersey City to Crackdown on Panhandlers

Jersey City officials are stepping up their efforts to protect their residents and visitors from harassment as the town looks to ban “aggressive panhandling.”

Terrence T McDonald of the Jersey Journal writes:

 “The measure, up for introduction at this week’s City Council meeting, would ban panhandlers from seeking money from anyone riding public transportation, sitting at a sidewalk cafe or using an ATM. Beggars found in violation would be subject to a 90-day prison sentence and a $1,250 fine”

Panhandling has become an increased issue in Jersey City with beggars not only hitting up motorists but they are also soliciting for money outside local restaurants and the Journal Square PATH station.

  How do you feel about panhandling?  Have you ever had an experience with a panhandler? Have you ever given them money? Leave your comments below.
