Davis Municipal Code/26.01.010


Davis Municipal Code Chapter 26


26.01.010 Annoying persons on streets, etc.


No person shall in any public place be guilty of conduct annoying to persons passing or being upon the streets or public grounds or upon adjacent premises. (Code 1964, ยง 7-8.106.)

Update: This code section was [WWW]"Repealed by 2357". Annoying people everywhere rejoiced, and the last remnants of civility fled the City of Davis. The code section has been memorialized by a touching eulogy.

2005-10-01 13:48:14   Amazing! What's the penalty for this? Is it enforced? Can I make a citizen's arrest of anyone who annoys me in a public place? —BarnabasTruman

2006-02-19 18:41:47   This sounds great for those shouting "Christians" on the Quad... —MatthewTom

2006-02-19 18:58:45   The Quad isn't inside the city limits. —JasonAller

2007-06-03 18:51:09   [santacruz]Santa Cruz has an interesting [santacruz]panhandling ordinance. —JasonAller

2008-05-12 01:32:24   If there was federal law regarding this, I'd have been executed years ago. —thelonepiper555

2010-02-01 23:49:33   This code section is actually downright unconstitutional, as it parallels almost exactly an ordinance turned over by the Supreme Court in [WWW]Coates v. Cincinnati. You don't have standing to challenge it unless it's applied against you, though, and I doubt any Davis officers are going to be enforcing it. So, it may well float on in Davis's Municipal Code as an ode to hilarity for all eternity! —TomGarberson

2010-04-08 18:28:58   It seems that many people are misreading this as though a person can be guilty of being annoying rather than what this says where "no person shall ... be guilty." —E.C.H.

2010-10-19 23:33:30   Farewell, 26.01.010. You will be missed. —TomGarberson
