LAS VEGAS (AP) - Kids looking for a frosty nighttime treat might
have to stay in their own freezers, as Clark County could give the
music of their beloved ice cream trucks a curfew.
Clark County commissioners are expected to consider a measure on
Tuesday that would ban ice cream trucks from playing loud music to
attract customers after 7 p.m. or 30 minutes after sunset,
whichever comes first.
Commissioners say the proposed ordinance is being introduced
because residents have complained of loud music late at night as
the trucks roll through neighborhoods.
The proposal would also restrict the trucks from broadcasting
before 10 a.m.
If passed, trucks that violate the ordinance will be fined.
