The gum poles have been an unsightly Charleston landmark for years and now authorities want to do something about them. It seems three utility poles at the entrance to the South Carolina city's popular outdoor market are routinely plastered with used chewing gum in a rainbow of colors. Workers clean away the gum only to see more return.
City traffic and transportation director Hernan Pena has asked police to keep a close watch on the poles and there's talk of installing surveillance cameras.
Police said anyone caught plastering gum faces a maximum fine of $500 and 30 days in jail.
