Ice cream truck jingles annoy councilman

Wilmington City Councilman Samuel Prado is getting an ice cream headache from those mobile vendors who blare tunes from their trucks.

He says some ice cream trucks are roaming neighborhoods and blaring their jingles at 11 p.m., while people are trying to sleep.

Prado say it happens every summer and he intends to keep making his own noise about the situation at council meetings until something gets down.

The city has a law that requires ice cream truck drivers to stop the music when they pull over to make a sale, and to refrain from using music after 9 p.m. Prado says he wants to know how the city will enforce the law.
