The city of Windsor is considering installing "care meters" (like a parking meter) to collect spare change from passers by which will then be given to panhandlers. It sounds like a crazy idea to me, how are they going to decide who to give it to and will it really will it stop panhandlers from doing their thing? Would you feed the meter? Do you normally help out panhandlers? What do you 

think of this idea?

I would assume they would use the money in homeless shelters or something like that. Not a bad idea really. Even if it doesn't stop panhandling to will benefit people if it goes to programs. I personally am not bothered by panhandlers they for the most part are not rude or mean or anything
