It is illegal to use your lawn sprinkler to annoy passerbyers
5-9-2: Lawn Sprinklers
No person shall place any revolving fountain, hose or lawn sprinkler so that the water from the same shall be thrown upon any street or sidewalk to the annoyance of passersby, and no person shall cause water to flow over or upon any street or sidewalk. (1979 Code)
I HATE it when selfish apartment building owners here install sprinklers right next to the sidewalk and on the public curbs, making it impossible to walk through without getting soaked. I don’t think this law is stupid.
