Those big bad SUVs *

| 6 Comments | 1 TrackBack

Slate magazine's Andy Bowers does a little poking around and discovers that in many cities — including Los Angeles, Santa Monica and Pasadena — SUV's exceed the tonnage allowed to use residential streets. Yes, they are illegal, except for occasional business trips, on any street with signs posted that ban trucks over 6,000 pounds. He engages councilwoman Janice Hahn on the subject, and she demurs on enforcing the law. What else is she going to say — her brother the mayor rides around town in an official SUV.

* And on NPR: Bowers chatted about it with Noah Adams on today's "Day to Day"
