D.C. government vs. food trucks, cont’d

by Walter Olson on June 18, 2013

Nick Sibilla of the Institute for Justice says the re-regulation plan has some devilish details:

Portions of the current proposal could cripple entrepreneurship. For starters, food trucks that park at an expired meter could face $2,000 fines for a first-time offense. From there on, fines would escalate quickly, reaching $4,000 for the second infraction, $8,000 for the third, and $16,000 onwards. In D.C., this would be a Class 1 infraction, the same legal category as possessing explosives without a license.

Get a handicapped parking pass. Then you don’t have to pay for metered parking.

Don’t you love the ADA?
