Food trucks wore out their welcome on Abbot Kinney’s First Fridays and well, just about everywhere else in the past year. Now it’s Downtown’s turn to give mobile vendors the old heave ho.

Starting this Thursday, trucks and parking lot events are banned from the neighborhood’s Art Walk following a car crash during the event in July that killed an infant. Convinced that the trucks and parking lot vendors are creating too dense of a cluster, the area in between Spring and Main Streets and 3rd and 7th Streets will be trucker-free grounds. [Blogdowntown]
