Chapter 82:12
Carrying from One Domain to Another

12. A person should not stand in a private domain and spit or urinate into the public domain or into a "carmelis." Similarly, it is forbidden to do so from the public domain or a "carmelis" into a private domain, from the public domain into a "carmelis", or from a "carmelis" into the public domain (1).

It is also forbidden to walk a distance of four "amos" (approximately 2.2m) in the public domain or a "carmelis," or to walk from one domain to a different domain, with spittle that has accumulated and has been moved around in one's mouth, [and is ready to be spat out] (2).

FOOTNOTES:

(1) Spitting or urinating is considered the equivalent of picking up an object in one domain and putting it down in another domain (See Shulchan Aruch 350:2, and Mishna Berura).

(2) Since the spittle is ready to be spat out, walking with it in one's mouth is considered carrying (Mishna Berura 350:14).
