Panhandling is protected free speech, but Dayton leaders want police to be “very aggressive” to cite panhandlers who violate the city’s ordinances.
Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley said panhandlers constantly break the law by illegally entering the right-of-way to collect cash from motorists.
“They get in the road every time — it’s dangerous, it’s not good for our quality of life and it needs to be enforced,” she said.
The city passed ordinances last year prohibiting “distribution” in the right-of-way to try to replace its anti-panhandling laws, which it rescinded for likely being unconstitutional.
Whaley recently instructed police Chief Richard Biehl and police command staff to prioritize enforcement of the city’s distribution laws and crackdown on panhandlers who violate the city’s ordinances. She said panhandling harms citizens’ quality of life and said police must do everything they can within the law to discourage the activity.

— Fifth Third Bank has launched an app that can be used instead of a debit card at its ATMs.
“Fifth Third is bringing new innovations to customers on a regular basis, and I’m excited that this new feature connects two channels our customers use frequently – our mobile app and Fifth Third ATMs,” stated Melissa Stevens, Fifth Third’s chief digital officer.
Fifth Third — the largest bank in the Dayton region — said mobile banking is growing, with a 40 percent increase in log-ins to their mobile banking app from December 2016 to December 2017.
Fifth Third has about 2,500 ATMs in its 10-state retail footprint and they all have card-free access.
To use Fifth Third’s ATMs without a debit card, customers tap on the cardless ATM icon in the app, touch anywhere on an ATM screen and scan the code that appears, and then enter their PIN.
