In the spring sunshine, it's rather pleasant out and about in Bedford town centre.
But it can be very easily spoilt by one very anti-social habit.
If you haven't already guessed, the problem is spitting.
It's a truly horrible habit which is why they're trying to stop it in Bedford. In fact, anyone caught doing it could end up being punished.
The town's Borough Council has started a consultation on the issue of spitting and urinating in public places.
If there's enough support from the local community, anyone caught in the act will be given an on-the-spot fine of £75, or risk being taken to court.
It's a sentiment shared by these council workers - they're fed up with people spitting in the streets they're trying to keep clean and tidy.
They want something to be done - and hope that by introducing fines, people will break this horrible habit, making the streets more pleasant for everyone.
