Ah yes, beautiful Lakeland. The cultural epicenter of the I-4 corridor.

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.

Bullshiat, you can carry around a kleenex to do that into.  Just because you have an issue doesn't mean everyone should have to see your nasty phlegm spewing out of you. By your logic I guess people with irritable bowel should be able to drop a deuce on the sidewalk too.
