With all these Maniacs dui it’s only a matter of time someone lost their life working while the other looser pleasure driving around is still alive and ready to kill more innocent people.

Yeah setting u vending on a side walk food or whatever can be dangerous. Some people have taken over complete sidewalks in Palmdale. You can’t even walk by without having to go into the street.
