Is it illegal to blow leaves out of a yard into the street? I see a lot of people doing that.

Yes, it is a misdemeanor violation of a Lawrence city ordinance to blow leaves into the street. The exact ordinance reads:

"No person shall sweep into or deposit in any gutter, street or other public place within the city the accumulation of litter from any building or from any public or private sidewalk or driveway. Persons owning or occupying property shall keep the sidewalk in front of their premises free of litter."
