In this Monday, Dec. 12, 2106 photo, pedestrians pass one of four parking-style meters in New Haven, Conn., located in areas where panhandling has been prevalent. The city is among the latest to install meters to collect loose change from those who might otherwise give money to those begging on the street. There are plans to install six more to support local, nonprofit organizations that help the homeless. (Peter Hvizdak /New Haven Register via AP)
