Anti homeless street furniture ( 1 )
February 12, 2010
Street furniture is a collective term for objects and pieces of equipment installed on streets and roads for various purposes, including traffic barrier, benches, bollards, post boxes, phone boxes, streetlamps, traffic lights, traffic signs, bus stops, grit bins, tram stops, taxi stands, public lavatories, fountains, watering troughs, memorials and waste receptacles.
Whether homeless by circumstance or by fault of their own, these are groups of people who desperately need the assistance of others. Unfortunately there are many out there who have no patience for the homeless and struggling. In fact, many cities have become so frustrated with the homeless problem, they have resorted to some methods that frankly seem a bit inhumane in dealing with this struggling population.
In some towns, benches are replaced by street furniture, on which only one person may seat and on which no one may sleep .Thus homeless people are removed to a distance.
