Window-washers threatened with jail

Illegal immigrants trying to clean car windows at traffic lights could face up to 3 months in jail, as the local government begins enforcing new laws enabling police to bring charges against window washers, confiscate their equipment and prosecute.

Some civic groups are grateful for the rules and subsequent action by city officials as the window-washers were "becoming more aggressive, especially to women alone in their cars."

Good news? This news was found @ Reuters and emanated from Florence, Italy.

Seems the Italians to have problems with traffic light (robot) nuisances.
