The City of Dallas passed an ordinance
that will crack down on protesters near freeways and overpasses.
The ordinance prohibits any activity, such as a protest, from
taking place at major highways because they could distract drivers and cause
Protestors cannot be within 75 feet of service roads, bridges or overpasses.
The move comes following 200
protesters of the George Bush Presidential Library. Police arrested three
people for walking in the Central Expressway service road near Mockingbird Lane.
City leaders sparred on whether the new ordinance violated free
speech and could lead to lawsuits.
Violators could be fined up to $500 dollars.
