Read today that a Ohio community has created a "do not knock" list for door to door sales representatives.
Door-to-door salespeople push everything from yard care to candy bars, but some people have had enough. It’s quiet in North Olmsted, Ohio, and Mayor Thomas O’Grady wants to keep it that way. "In the past we've had a 'Do Not Knock' sticker which we put on the front window,” O’Grady said. “If a peddler should walk toward the home, see the sticker, they'd walk away. In this case, we've taken it to the next level."
By making a call to city hall or logging onto the North Olmsted website, people can request to be on the "Do Not Knock" registry. "If there's a peddler or solicitor that would like to come work in the city of North Olmsted but they're required to check ... have this series of addresses ... and they're not permitted to even walk up the driveway," O’Grady said.
This could be interesting in the political arena (of course, politicians are exempt).
More to come.
