What Would You Ban in Westwood?

A number of Massachusetts communities have deep-sixed some interesting items and activities over the past year, but should Westwood join the banning bandwagon?

 

Concord’s so-called bottle ban became a bylaw earlier this week, Brookline recently banned plastic bags and Styrofoam cups, and Arlington’s Town Meeting this fall upheld a seasonal leaf blower ban. Meanwhile, home-cooked foods have been forced out of many schools, an ostensible attempt to protect against allergies and childhood obesity. Let's not forget the most talked about ban of 2012, Middleborough's swearing ban.

Westwood hasn’t exactly hopped on this banning bandwagon, but should it?

Is there an activity or item you would want to see banned out of environmental, health or quality-of-life concerns? Let us know in the comments section below.

don't have a problem with leaf-blowers but with how sometimes people use them... blowing leaves off their yard onto the street where they then end up in other yards... or to clean off their driveway and end up blowing dust and debris up into the air for all the neighborhood to enjoy

would love to ban telemarketing or door to door solicitations... do not call lists don't seem to be effective, we get about 5 calls a week
