Kids scamming drivers on US1
The sad part is that an adult or two run this operation and they have the kids do all the work, and the kids probably don't see much, if any of the money. They play on people's sympathies and I guess that's ok if you feel you are giving to kids, but you are actually giving to adults who are using these kids as child labor.
I've witnessed in the past how the kids are treated, the adults basically thrown them out of a car where they are dropped off and they are called names and yelled at and told not to come back without any money. I've witnessed this in front of the post office and down by the Mayfair. This was a couple of years ago. I'm assuming it's the same operation here on US1.
They were eventually chased out of the Center Grove after bothering tourists around CocoWalk and other areas. Maybe they'll be chased away from US1. I don't see how they can be permitted to be in the center of the highway anyway, it's tantamount to playing in traffic; quite dangerous.
