POLL: Could MetroWest Towns Use a Swearing Fine?
Middleborough just enacted a swearing fine at Town Meeting last Monday. Do you think the MetroWest community could benefit from a similar law?
On Monday Town Meeting voters in Middleborough easily passed an article to make it possible for police officers to fine individuals for swearing in public, according to an article on necn.com. Proponents say that the change is not intended to affect private and casual conversations, but just cut down on those who swear loudly in public parks and centers.
But do you think MetroWest towns could benefit from a swearing bylaw? Let us know in the poll below and feel free to add your extra thoughts in our comments section.
