Re: Ice cream trucks in Flushing and other Chinese neighborhoods

IANAL, but this is what ChatGPT 3.5 says (and yes, I know that it tends to "hallucinate" or confabulate, so I always take its output with a grain of salt):
Based on the regulation you mentioned and further clarifications from NYC's mobile food vending rules, no part of the food truck, including the rear, should be within ten feet of any crosswalk at any intersection. This rule is intended to ensure pedestrian safety and unobstructed movement.

Clarification of the Rule:

  • 10-Foot Rule: The regulation explicitly states that no part of the food vending operation should be within ten feet of any crosswalk at any intersection. This means both the vending window and any part of the vehicle, including the rear, must comply with this rule.

Impact on an 18-Foot Truck:

  • For an 18-foot-long truck, the entire truck must be positioned in such a way that its closest point (whether it is the rear or front) is at least ten feet away from the crosswalk. This positioning ensures that the truck does not encroach on the safety buffer zone established by the regulation.

Specific Regulation:

  • Source: The NYC Traffic Rules, Section 4-08 (h)(8), states: "No food vendor shall vend within any bus stop, taxi stand, within the portion of the sidewalk abutting any no standing zone adjacent to a hospital as defined in subdivision one of section 2801 of the New York state public health law, within ten feet of any driveway, any subway entrance or exit, or any crosswalk at any intersection"​ (Welcome to NYC.gov | City of New York)​.
