UK City Bans Swearing On The Street
A British city has posted a series of rules around its high street banning swearing. In addition, the campaign is seeking to curb public vomiting, uringating and fighting, using common British slang. Such sights are common in city centres across the UK, particularly around the holiday season.
City hall bosses trying to prevent booze-fuelled Christmas bad behaviour have banned swearing on their streets - and put up signs using slang to get the message across.
Signs have gone up around the city centre
Preston council's Respect Our City campaign advertises a number of rules in an attempt to make sure revellers do not cause misery for residents and businesses over the festive period.
Signs around the Lancashire city list "Rules 'Round Town" such as "No 'Effin & 'Jeffin" and "No Aggro".
Other reminders are "No Pavement Pizza", which shows a character being sick in the street, and "Don't Pee Anti-Social" which depicts someone urinating in a public place.
The campaign is also designed to clamp down on swearing, spitting, litter-dropping and dog fouling.
