Calif. City Moves To Freeze Ice Cream Trucks' Music Output

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

GREENE: And while that sound gets kids running, it gets some adults fuming. This week, the Long Beach City Council drafted legislation to limit when ice cream trucks can play music. Vendors fear it would melt their business. One councilman said he does like ice cream and ice cream trucks, but neighbors just need a lick of peace and quiet.
