City Cracks Down On Vendors For Traffic Violations

Dozens of ice cream trucks and vendors have been towed away in New York City for receiving traffic tickets, according to the city.

The towing is part of law enforcement project dubbed “Operation Meltdown,” which is cracking down on local ice cream truck drivers and street vendors for multiple traffic violations.

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration says a group owe $4.5 million for 22,500 unpaid traffic violations. 

There are as many as 20,000 street vendors in New York City, selling hot dogs, flowers, and food from trucks, according to the Street Vendor Project, part of the Urban Justice Center.
