Sioux Falls Cracking Down On Panhandlers

Sioux Falls Cracking Down On Panhandlers

South Dakota's largest city is cracking down on panhandlers.

A new ordinance taking effect next month in Sioux Falls prohibits people from begging in an aggressive manner or in traffic. A violation would carry a $95 fine.

The changes do not prohibit people from standing on a public sidewalk and asking others for money, as long as those being solicited are not in vehicles.

The ordinance is modeled after one in Rapid City. Police say the goal is to increase safety. Advocates for the homeless say they would rather see people's dollars going to agencies that help the needy, rather than to the homeless themselves.
