Why would anyone even want to take their dog to one of those California cities. I don’t ever expect to visit one again and I guarantee I wouldn’t take my dog to one of them.

I'm kind of a "water-quality wonk" and in FL they are really pounding it into people's heads to pick up after their dogs because the waste washes into the local waterways and ultimately, either the big rivers or the ocean/gulf.

I wouldn't even want to think of what the e-coli levels are at any west-coast beaches....

what does this have to do with RVing? You're just whinging about a place you don't like - so just don't go there and quit whinging about it.
Kind of like if you don't like a thread don't read it.

Usually this same behavior moves to campgrounds and RV parks. Just like the trashing and tagging of our national parks.


This thread is NOT about behaviors when camping. It is pure and simply a "let's bash California" thread.

Having a bad day? LOL.

If you would have read my first post and comprehended it, your post couldn't be further from the truth.

It is what it is. This is what happened in the campground I was at. They told me I would be kicked out if I didn't clean up after my daughters dog. I thought it was funny that SF has a policy that you not only don't have to clean up after your dog, you can take a dump right in the street too if you please.

No body is forcing you to read my thread. On the right side of the screen there is a hide button. I don't want to offend you anymore, so please use it.

Yes. Every state should pass laws against doing anything to help the homeless. Just like a raccoon, if you feed him, he will come back. And he might bring friends. Pass laws, don't let them sleep in parks, under bridges, or any public place. When you catch one, take him to court, charge him a big fine. Can't pay the fine? Put him in jail!

I read with interest the OP's link to the article about the newly elected DA ignoring the laws concerning prostitution, defecating and urinating in public. If I read the article correctly it seems that S.F. has laws on the books criminalizing this behavior but the DA has chose to ignore them.
So this new DA has taken it upon himself to interpret laws and ignore them as he sees fit.
Did no one else catch this?

I believe is was N.Y.city mayor Rudy Giulian that cleaned up N.Y. city by changing city law banning sex peep shows and related activity in Times Square. He also enforced the ban against public urination. His reasoning was if you enforce the laws concerning little crimes you'll have less big crime. I don't know if that panned out but as a frequent visitor to the city I did notice Time's Sq became a more clean and enjoyable place to visit.

My career took me many times to both S.F. and Seattle. In the early 2010's I did not notice the issues we're discussing in S.F. so it must have gotten worse since them. However Seattle is another story. I would avoid downtown Seattle then and it's probably gotten worse.

That's a simplistic answer to a difficult problem. You don't really think the homeless are going to pay a fine and change their behavior, so If you jail all the homeless you better have a large tax base to take care of them.

Does this mean if we go to San Francisco we can legally dump our holding tanks into the city storm drains? Awesome!
I'm pretty sure they have a law against discharging sewage into a storm system. If you dump it on the sidewalk you should be good.

Maybe if California started prosecuting people for these crimes, they would feel persecuted, form caravan's and march to Mexico.
