Provision

A person is guilty of a public nuisance who does any act or is guilty of an illegal omission which causes any common injury, danger or annoyance to the public or to the people in general who dwell or occupy property in the vicinity, or which must necessarily cause injury, obstruction, danger or annoyance to persons who may have occasion to use any public right.

A common nuisance is not excused on the ground that it causes some convenience or advantage.


Simply put

According to the section, a person commits public nuisance who either does any act or is guilty of an illegal omission, which causes either any common injury or danger or annoyance to the public or to the people in general who stay or occupy property near that place, or which must necessarily cause either injury or obstruction or danger or annoyance to such persons who may have occasion to use any public right. It is not a defense to say that the common nuisance is convenient or advantageous.
