No transient vendor or solicitor may conduct his or her activities in any manner which obstructs traffic, impairs the use of public property and facilities by others, substantially disturbs the tranquility of neighborhoods or otherwise creates a public hazard, nuisance or inconvenience. The Town Marshal or the Marshal's deputies may order the cessation, removal or modification of any transient vending or soliciting activities found not to comply with this subsection, and the transient vendor or solicitors shall comply with that order.
