Found in LA: Street Hypocrisy
"The municipal code prohibits operation of vehicles over 6000 lbs. gross weight on almost all city streets. Escalades, Expeditions, Hummers, Navigators, Suburbans and the like are all well over 6,000 lbs. GW. The lightest Suburban is 7,200 lbs GW. The
Hummer H2 is 8,600 lbs GW.
"The code specifies certain primary and secondary 'truck routes,' and provides limited exceptions to the prohibition. Main Street is such a secondary route.
Of course, the cops don't enforce this law. That would, you know, make the SUV manufacturers sad."
