San Diego

The San Diego City Council Monday placed new constraints on door-to-door solicitors by passing a law prohibiting soliciting from sundown to 8 a.m.

A council committee had endorsed the idea of prohibiting soliciting beginning when it gets dark--defined legally as half an hour after sundown--but Councilman Bruce Henderson urged an even tighter policy.

Henderson said many people don't want to be bothered by solicitors in the early evening, and that many elderly residents are frightened.
