There are shopping carts all over L.A. Blocks, even miles from the nearest store of origin. How did they get there? How long are they staying? What is their final destination? It’s an epidemic. One that Los Angeles believes warrants some immediate action. Some shock and awe.
The L.A. City Council’s Planning and Land Use Committee (PLUM) wants an ordinance that would require stores to implement a shopping cart containment system.
According to VICA Weekly, The Valley Industry & Commerce Association doesn’t like it, because it will cost businesses money.
This is likely to force stores to invest in expensive wheel-locking systems that can cost hundreds of dollars per cart. VICA is concerned that the ordinance will create unnecessary burdens for businesses.
We definitely don’t want businesses to be burdened.
But, what about the Carts? Shouldn’t they be free to choose when and where they live? Shouldn’t they be allowed to marry other Carts if they so choose?
