POLL of the DAY (66): TIME TO CLEAN UP THE STREETS?

You pull up to the traffic lights and suddenly a stream of frothy water is sprayed onto your windscreen.

You haven't asked for it and your windscreen isn't that dirty, but an intersection windscreen washer has arrived and it's going to be cleaned anyway.

This is probably a common experience for urban dwellers, especially those of us living in Australia and New Zealand.

Is it just people trying to earn a living or do you consider it intimidating?

Are they a public nuisance or do they provide a service to the community and show a degree of entrepreneurship?

Some councils already have bylaws in place banning their intersection activities.

Is a ban the best way forward or should windscreen washers be recognised as a proper licensed trade so they can continue as a legitimate employment option?

Could windscreen washing get people into legitimate work?

Ban them or regulate them?
