i have seen these people for decades, not sure why the cops don't run them off, standing there has got to be illegal, they are in a dangerous spot, they could get hurt there by a car running up on the median strip, or fall over/pass out in front of our cars. I have noticed the demographics of the sign people has changed over the last few years, they used to be older, disabled, or crazy, now I am seeing a lot of seemingly able bodies white men and women, standing there, or walking up and down the strip, or even between lanes of traffic. Almost hit one the other day as the light turned green he was trying to get back to the median, and walked out from in front of a van, right in front of me. The new wrinkle is I have seen some checking their smart phones as they stand there...that has got to be bad for business but I guess they are not Bill Gates. How can you ask me for money, if you have enough money for a cell phone and a plan? Anyone else see this?
