L.A. council members push to end street-vending ban
Two Los Angeles City Council members on Wednesday called for the city to legalise street food sales and no longer penalise those who sell fried pupusas, fresh-cut fruit and bacon-wrapped hot dogs on sidewalks.
The current city code prohibits selling things on sidewalks, exposing vendors to hefty fines, confiscated equipment and even incarceration. That needs to change, said Councilman Jose Huizar, who represents the Eastside of Los Angeles, and Councilman Curren Price, whose district takes in much of South L.A.
"Los Angeles has a world-class street food culture,`` Huizar said at a news conference at City Hall.”But we sometimes want to pretend it doesn`t exist."
