Morning Poll: Roadway Panhandlers

In Arlington, roadway panhandlers “have upped the ante and no longer are content to just stand in medians, but of late have been found walking in between lanes of traffic while vehicles are stopped.”

That’s according to the Sun Gazette, in the its weekly Highs and Lows column. The paper gave Arlington County a “thumbs down” for not dealing with the issue.

“What next?” the Sun Gazette asked. “Will we have people with squeegies demanding cash in exchange for washing windows?”

Do you think that Arlington County police should be more aggressive in dealing with those asking for cash on the side (or the middle) of the road?
