New Law Bars Sex Offenders From Ice Cream Trucks

On Tuesday, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signed a new law that bars sex offenders from operating ice cream or snow cone trucks in Illinois. This new law bars sex offenders from operating trucks that sell food or beverages. The main purpose of the law was to make sure that sex offenders do not operate trucks that sell ice cream to children. The fear is that sex offenders would get a job operating these trucks just so they can be around children. The same law also bars sex offenders from operating ambulances.

Many other states have enacted laws like this. Other states require background searches before someone is allowed to operate these trucks.
