These days it’s hard to go anywhere without seeing a person taking a selfie, and that’s especially true for tourist destinations, with folks wanting to make sure they get a shot of themselves at the cool place they just visited.
Well, that is going to get a lot harder to do when visiting Milan. The Italian city is trying to crack down on bad tourist behavior by banning the use of selfie sticks. The ban went into affect on July 14th and will last until August 13th, but there is a chance it may “continue until it is needed.”
And the ban isn’t just for selfie sticks. Hoping to curb terrible tourist behavior in general, it also bans food trucks, street sellers, and the sale of any drinks in glass bottles or cans.
As for whether it will stop the practice of annoying selfie’s, that’s anybody’s guess. Especially since there’s no word on what consequences folks will face if they’re caught using a selfie stick.
