Here too but our street is quiet so the icee or ice cream truck is usually the only vehicle on the road. Not that they come down here much. We usually only see the ice cream truck at the park.

I live in apartments and we have about 3 that come through on a regular basis. The speed limit is 5mph and everyone abides by it so.... It's safe here.

because kids are NOT being watched like they used to be....esp in summer, parents are stuck for child care, leaving many a latch key kid home alone

Eh.... Ice cream trucks know kids will be running. They have been around for years and haven't posed a danger.

My husband was hit by a truck when he was 9. He was running back across the street after visiting the ice cream truck in the park.
