SF to install meters for the homeless

SAN FRANCISCO

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the city will install 10 old parking meters in some of the most heavily panhandled areas, such as Market Street and Van Ness Avenue.

Officials say the money will go directly to charities that help the homeless. The goal is to reduce panhandling and to educate tourists and residents about the problem with giving money directly to people on the streets.
