BUSKERS and street traders are to be targeted in a crackdown during the 2014 Commonwealth Games, the Scottish Government announced today.
Unauthorised traders, burger van operators and illegal advertising will also be outlawed at Games venues next year.
The ban will also extend to George Square and the Merchant City, with the warning that offenders could face court action with hefty fines of up to £20,000.
Hand-picked council workers from Glasgow and the surrounding area will form a team of enforcers who will patrol the streets surrounding all 17 Games venues, under proposals announced by Holyrood.
