The local online effort to stop a recent law passed to limit taco truck activity with harsh punishment seems to be getting some attention:

The petition is working and your thousands of signatures are getting some serious attention. We’re receiving support from all over Los Angeles and all across the world. Letters have come in from Texas, Washington, Massachusetts, even Canada and New Zealand. We’re also receiving numerous press inquiries, including major print, online and television outlets.

But we need to keep going, especially in the areas most affected. If you live in East L.A. or other unincorporated areas, signing the petition just isn’t enough.

In the short time since launched, the blog-petition has received just under 1700 signatures. A week from now, they hope to have 5,000.
