ProdigalSigh: ReapTheChaos: I don't think it warrants arrest, a ticket would suffice. Spitting in public is just gross and there's no legitimate reason to do it under normal circumstances, especially for those nasty farks chewing tobacco.I have sinus issues causing me to be almost constantly getting rid of mucus both by blowing my nose and yes I have to hork the occasional loogie. The alternative is I keep it in and most likely throw up in the near future as it sets off my gag reflex or I sneeze and it flies out anyway. This is not something I am happy to do, and I try to do it discretely. So yes, removing this ordinance would benefit me if I lived there. It was probably enacted to stop people from spitting tobacco in the first place, a habit that has severely declined since then.
