Maybe the ire aimed at taco trucks has been misdirected. Perhaps we should go after ice cream trucks instead. They are certainly more noisy, as a sleep-deprived Julio at LA Eastside knows first hand after a daily, 20-minute concert outside his Lincoln Heights apartment:

“It turns out that outside my apartment is a key spot since the kids run down from the hill to get their fill of high-fructose corn syrup frozen desserts. I’ve counted 15 kids at one time, all unable to decide on what they want. Now I actually enjoy how alive (and yes sometimes loud) this neighborhood can be but damn, park your ice cream truck somewhere else while I’m trying to nap off my hangover!”
