Most of the panhandlers in my city hang out at intersections (though it's banned by the city) because it's more difficult downtown. I will seldom give a Cliff bar or something if I have one but don't want to hold up traffic or get distracted.
I'm inclined to believe they're genuine because their signs tend to be long-winded messages no-one driving by could possibly read. Unless that's part of the scheme...
