SAN FRANCISCO—San Francisco mayor, Edwin M. Lee, is going to be signing legislation into law which establishes better ground rules for food trucks in San Francisco. Some of the points in the legislation are that food trucks must be at least 75 feet away from existing restaurants, they must move locations frequently, and they must stay at least 1,000 feet away from most high schools.

The new law is going to be put into place to end the feud between food trucks and established restaurants. The legislation aims to recognize that food trucks should keep some distance from certain places, such as schools, but should not have to limit themselves to downtown San Francisco.

Because food trucks have been a popular trend in the past few years, legislators want to make sure they can still function without being a problem to restaurant owners and those who are in favor of nutritious meals as opposed to food trucks. The legislation will reportedly also allow food trucks to operate on college campuses.
