Well according to CNN, this was only the tip of the ice cream and things have stayed icy for ice cream truck businesses. CNN reported that over 45 ice cream trucks have been seized by the city. The reasons included summons of 22,000 citations for traffic violations resulting in at $4.5 million in fines. However, it gets better. The ice cream truck owners are accused of creating shell companies to avoid the fines.
