Sacramento County it's imposing new law to put a stop to panhandling at street corners and various other locations.
The ordinance will make it illegal to panhandle near ATMs, bus stops, gas stations, stop lights, stop signs and while standing on a traffic median. The new rules would also ban aggressive panhandling.
"I believe in the no aggressive panhandling. I feel for them. There's so many of them out there," motorist Carl Worthen said. "But yet, I hate driving up every time, coming to a stop and having to look away."
For the next 30 days, the sheriff's department said it's going to offer panhandlers fliers and a warning. Then, they could be fined or face jail time.
The ordinance is yielding mixed reactions.
"I think panhandling should be prohibited on the streets big time," Jason Edwards said.
