Begging at exit ramps concerns St. Louis officials

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis leaders are taking a tough approach to stop people from asking for money at exit ramps.

Director of Human Services Bill Siedhoff told KMOX Radio ( ) that some are so aggressive that drivers are intimidated. He says some drivers have changed their routes to avoid the ramps such as one at Interstate 64 and 14th Street.

To address the problem, the city has put up “no begging” signs at 25 locations and plans another two dozen.
