    Panhandlers cross into traffic to get money from people in the middle of three to four lanes of traffic and get hit by vehicles. This is an issue of safety. But so long as we don't violate his rights... seriously!

    After doing some research, it apparently is protected by the 1st amendment. Now before people jump down my throat, this is not my opinion, but information found online. This is actually protected by a US exception called "Commercial Speech". From Source Material [Although commercial speech normally involves the sale of goods and services, the Supreme Court has on one occasion defined it more broadly as "expression related solely to the economic interest of the speaker and its audience.] (Scheidegger, n.d.)

    Panhandling is protected under the First Amendment as free speech? Never knew that!
