Well, the sudden disappearance of your local ice-cream truck may have had something to do with the advent of this apparantly much-needed local ordinance:


By KENNETH LOVETT New York Post Correspondent

State lawmakers yesterday struck a deal on what they're calling the "Mr. Softee Bill," a measure that bans sexual perverts from working on ice cream trucks, The Post has learned.

The legislation prohibits any sex offender required to register with the state under Megan's Law from working on the trucks.

The Republican-led state Senate has already passed it, and the Democratic-controlled Assembly is expected to give final approval today.

Assembly sponsor Patricia Eddington (D-L.I.) said the bill is a result of several cases throughout the state in which children were molested by ice-cream truck workers.

I'm sure given your newfound sense of parental propriety you'll agree it's a worthwhile statute, even if it means you have to walk a bit farther.


I heard from some friends that dulas/labor coaches can be helpful...
