Msp really needs to regulate all the aggressive pan handlers in that location already, very annoying intersection

Actually, there isn't much panhandling at this intersection. Usually just one person panhandling the one approach and none on the others. Plenty of intersections you have one person working each approach and one or two where it seems like they divide lanes between them.
