Mobile food vendors in Lexington, K.Y., are fighting a proposal that would make it nearly impossible to earn an honest living in the occupation of their choice. Proposed restrictions include prohibiting vendors from operating within 200 feet of a brick-and-mortar restaurant, limiting vending on public property to a small space downtown and severely limit the times of day vendors may be open for business.
These complicated regulations only serve to protect the interests of brick and mortar restaurants concerned about new competition. The Institute for Justice has urged Lexington to reject blatantly anti-competitive laws and adopt streamlined laws narrowly tailored to protect public health and safety.
