Spitted-out chews have cost 200.000 czk already

Since the 1st July, when the new public notice came into function, people can be fined for feeding the pigeons, peeing on the public or throwing away litters on the streets. The police officers have been trying to settle 1331 breaching of the regulation. The police have collected 193.700 czk so far.

Over 80 cases haven’t been solved yet, so there will be some court finishing, where they can get up to 30 000 czk fine. However, the effectivity of this law have been criticized: Frantiska Hodana from Prague Services have said for LN: “The anti-mess law have not brought any visible change… what have proved to be effective is the no-public-drinking law, which have forced the homeless out from some places, and so stopped its polluting.”
