Taking the 'Do Not Call' List to the Next Level: 'Do Not Knock'

Noknock Eric Lipman noted yesterday that a whopping 200 million people have now signed up for the Federal Trade Commission's "Do Not Call" list. Now, the residents of tony Rye, N.Y. are ready to take it to the next level with a new "Do Not Knock" list of their own.

In short, many Rye residents don't want solicitors, non-profit workers or any other strangers darkening their doorstep, and they are ready to take action. "People come knocking at my door and I don't know if it's legitimate or not. It's an inconvenience when it's dinner time," Rye's Bridget Vavasour told ABC News.The Do Not Knock registry under consideration in Rye would put solicitors on notice that they may not visit addresses on the list.

ABC reports that several Midwest suburbs like Parma, Ohio already have "no knock" lists (Parmanian readers can register here), but Rye would be the first municipality in the New York area to pass such a law.
