No-vending zones get defeated in El Paso, Texas
Hot Air    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Street vendors had to conduct business outside of a thousand-yard zone where any other restaurants operated, a scheme that the city admitted had no basis in safety or health concerns. The local restaurant association pushed for the zoning restrictions as a way to protect their businesses, and the city responded by virtually outlawing mobile vendors from operating where potential consumers are.
