It might be more effective if they fine the drivers who stop and donate to these folks, most of whomRead More I see are very strong and able. Their energy could be put to better use working somewhere/anywhere than walking up and down the highways.

That's odd considering the county is giving out millions in free services to illegal aliens. AtRead More least the panhandlers have a good chance of being legal citizens.

I ALWAYS give to the less fortunate when safe. I tell them about Bethesda Cares or regional VA helpRead More centers, and they are very grateful, as that information is not out there on the streets. I give to panhandlers who are crippled and maimed of body and spirit. The County could print out help informational flyers to be distributed to drivers at gas stations & libraries, which could be given to the panhandlers who need that information. About the tragedy of the woman who got killed: people are always getting killed in traffic, so don't use that to fortify some other agenda, unless that agenda is paired with reaching out. In talking to the panhandlers, I find they are willing to work, but I hear there is a lot of red tape and competition at Montgomery Works, especially if not computer saavy.
