WTF? DRAFT CT BY-LAW PROPOSES FINE FOR SWEARING ON BEACHES



Cape safer beaches to be, as City of Cape Town working on a proposal to implement a new by-law to fine swearing at coastal facilities. The idea is to create a safer public space as per other protocol for public access. EWN reported, the draft is still to be considered and beachgoers can have their point of views before its approval. Coastal by-law goal is to provide protection against abusive language by managing social behaviour on beaches. The proposed by-law demands the individuals not to make use of an offensive form of communication. Such zones are described as areas comprising coastal public property and waters and the seashore.

Beachgoers will remain responsible to a fine if they jeopardize or inhibit or making use of ill-mannered speech. However, this by-law has been not finalized but still under proposal as a draft form. As it needs the full board members for approval before it becomes law. The City’s Mayco member, said: “The intention of the by-law is not to be punitive with regard to foul language, but rather to create provisions that will enable the City’s law enforcement officers to intervene when necessary and to prevent any person from being verbally abused in public spaces on our coastline.
