Strippers break parking signs

"Big, strong" prostitutes are breaking parking signs in Papatoetoe by using them as dancing poles.
More than 40 have been bent or snapped in the last 18 months claims the Auckland Council, which wants new legislation banning street prostitution in residential, school and sports areas.
Prostitutes use the poles to solicit customers, says Papatoetoe business district manager Donna Lee.
"Some of the prostitutes are big, strong people," she told Fairfax.
Local residents and business operators are forced to clean up condoms, alcohol and defecation afterwards, she says.
Auckland Mayor Len Brown is backing a bill which would impose fines of $2000 on prostitutes and their clients, and police could arrest those suspected of prostitution or soliciting.
But Prostitute Collective spokeswoman Annah Pickering said prostitutes would just stop carrying condoms to avoid being accused.
"They'll be expected to pay a fine, which they can't pay," says Ms Pickering.
One Papatoetoe local told TVNZ his 10-year-old daughter saw a couple having sex up against their fence, and another said he received a parcel addressed to "Hooker's Corner".
"It found its way to us with no problems whatsoever," the resident told the network.
Signs can cost between $200 and $500 to replace, and $150 or more to repair.

Strippers and prossies are different things, drunk cunts try to pole dance on poles not just big strong prostitutes lol. Set them up with a house, with regular std checks and protection and a room to work in instead of telling them to fuck off to other areas. Also the condom thing is ridiculous, pregnant poledancing prossies are more likely to break signs than childless ones. This silly world needs more contraception. Putting these chicks healths/wombs at risk is worse than finding the occasional condom. Condoms are good. All in all hating what people does won't make them go away. More legislation to protect, less legislation to condemn. Deal with reality and not the ideal.
Also I'm pretty sure fat pole dancers aren't what broke all of those signs, that seems to be a bit of a stretch. People nick them and smash them and hit them with their cars and all sorts of shit, the same stat could be condemning boy racing in the area in the next article.

It is no surprise that in NZ there is more concern for a street post than there is for some of the most vulnerable people in our society. If you care to look deeper you will probably find lots of these escorts are sex abuse victims, come from low income families, feel responsible for making sure the never-ending bills are paid and have severe psychological issues through no fault of their own. Fair call that some of these people do need to live up their name 'professional' and be wise about disposal of waste.
