Yakima City Council Votes Down "Giving Meters"

Posted: Updated:
YAKIMA, Wash. -- People living in Yakima will see some new laws when it comes to panhandling, but something they won't see are the proposed "giving meters."
The city council said no to installing the refurbished parking meters, citing high costs as one of the reasons.
However, the council did pass a resolution criminalizing the action of taking items from cars at 15 intersections in Yakima. The city said these intersections have the highest accident rates.
