Highway Profanity

Posted on Updated on

If any person shall, on any public road or highway and in the hearing of two or more persons, in a loud and boisterous manner, use indecent or profane language, he shall be guilty of a Class 3 misdemeanor.  The following counties shall be exempt from the provisions of this sectionPitt and Swain. N.C.G.S. 14-197

So… if you’re planning on using profane or indecent language in a populated street, make sure you’re in Greenville or Bryson City.  I’d love to know the back story on how these counties  got exempted.  I’m guessing that ECU football fans explains Greenville, but what’s up with Bryson City?
