Minimum Fine for Peeing in Public –Yes or No [POLL]

It’s the quintessence of being a cafone!

Peeing in public!

But then again, haven’t we all at one time or another?

Please…don’t try and deny it…everyone has…even women!

But don’t you get sick of seeing people doing that and more in the street and say to yourself, “…there really should be more of a fine for that?”

Well, the good city fathers of Morristown have heard you and want to up the penalities.

According to this:

Morristown hopes a new law will flush its public peeing problem.

The council introduced a law Tuesday that would raise the minimum fine for those caught urinating or defecating in public to $500. The legislation would go into effect if passed at the council’s Sept. 11 meeting.

The law currently on the books doesn’t associate a minimum penalty with the act — an offender could get hit with a $10 to a $2,000 fine.

A warning to frequent offenders: the law, if passed, wouldn’t stop at a $500 minimum, however. Three-time violators would have to pay a minimum of $1,000.

Councilwoman Michelle Dupree Harris said Wednesday she’s seen a stream (get it: stream!) of complaints regarding the issue over the years and backs the fine hike.

“When the college kids come home we see a lot of it,” Councilwoman Michelle Reid Harris said. “It’s not just the college kids, though. It’s the weekends. It’s just a quality of life issue for our residents.

“Sometimes you see people throwing up [on the streets].”

I like the idea of a minimum fine in principle, but is it really going to curb the practice? (Again, curb! See how I went there?)

Let’s face it, when you gotta go, you gotta go!

And where does it end?

Can we not now spit our gum out onto the street?
