ESL 341: New Law for Taco Trucks


Download


Taco trucks cannot remain parked in the same location for more than an hour, according to a new Los Angeles city law. They cannot return to that location for three hours. In the past, they could not remain parked in the same location for more than two hours. Restaurant owners complain that the taco trucks are stealing their customers, "because taco truck food is faster and cheaper. Plus, they don't have to pay taxes or get health inspections."

Lawyer Phil Greenberg says the time limit is unenforceable. "The two-hour law was never enforced by the city, so what's the point of changing it to one hour?" he asked. "The city has more important things to do than ticket these hard workers. What about all the potholes, the graffiti, the homeless, and the gangs? LA is almost $400 million in debt. The mayor has already said he's going to lay off 767 city employees. There won't be anyone left to enforce the new parking law. There are thousands of taco trucks in this city."

The penalty for the first violation of the new law is $100; the second violation can result in a maximum $1,000 fine and six months in jail. One angry truck owner said, "This is a racist law. All of us taco truck owners are Latinos. Our trucks are an important part of the history and culture of Los Angeles. Thirty of us have already agreed to park our trucks in the same spot all day long. If a law is illegal, it is our duty as good citizens to ignore it." City residents who want to support taco trucks can visit saveourtacotrucks.org.

Luật mới cho xe bán dạo Taco

Xe tải bán dạo Taco không thể đậu trên cùng một nơi hơn một giờ, theo luật mới của thành phố Los Angeles. Họ cũng không thể quay lại cùng một nơi trong vòng ba giờ. Trong quá khứ họ chỉ không thể đậu ở một nơi hơn hai giờ. Chủ nhà hàng than phiền là xe tải bán dạo lấy mất khách hàng của họ, "vì thức ăn của xe tải taco nhanh hơn và rẻ hơn. Thêm nữa, họ không phải đóng thuế và kiểm tra vệ sinh."

Luật sư Phil Greenberg nói rằng thời gian giới hạn không thể thực hiện được. "Luật hai giờ chưa từng được thực hành bởi thành phố, vậy có ý nghĩa gì đâu với luật một giờ?" ông hỏi. "Thành phố có nhiều việc quan trọng để làm hơn là phạt những người lao động cực nhọc này. Còn mấy cái ổ gà, tranh vẽ trên tường, những người vô gia cư, bọn giang hồ? LA gần $400 triệu nợ nần. Ông thị trưởng đã nói sẽ cắt giảm 767 nhân viên thành phố. Sẽ không có ai để thực thi luật đậu xe taco mới. Có cả ngàn chiếc taco tải trong thành phố này."

Phạt vi phạm lần đầu theo luật là $100; lần hai tối đa là $1,000 và sáu tháng tù giam. Một người chủ xe tải giận dữ nói, "Đây là luật phân biệt chủng tộc. Những người chủ xe tải taco là người Latino. Xe tải của chúng tôi là một phần quan trong của lịch sử và văn hoá Los Angeles. Ba mươi người chúng tôi đã đồng ý đậu xe tải của chúng tôi tại một điểm cả ngày. Cư dân thành phố muốn ủng hộ xe tải taco có thể thăm trang mạng saveourtacotrucks.org.
