Delivering a product,contractor driving to and from jobsite. Mobile billboards serve no purpose other than to drive around so you can see them....not to deliver anything or transport workers, etc.



I'm sure someone with a marketing background would say they do serve a purpose and are in fact delivering something....a message, or, in the case of Cliff Bars, a brand image. Obviously, despite current fuel prices, the stores and companies find such methods cost effective.

They may find it cost effective. I as a consumer and a occupier of planet Earth find it completely reprehensible and without any good judgement. Yeah I saw the Cliff Bar van at Coxing this evening. I tried my damndest to run it off the road, but my girlfriends little subaru was no match. Cliff bars suck anyway.

New Paltz mayor wants to ban chains
Julia Taylor



KINGSTON, NY (2006-08-07) Opposition has surfaced in some parts of the Northeast region to retail sprawl, especially big-box chain stores. Now, the mayor of New Paltz, New York, has proposed blocking ANY new franchise or chain store from coming into the village. But not everyone supports the idea. WAMC's Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Julia Taylor reports.

Nah I didn't bribe him. He has a brainof his own. Besides, there isn;t much space left in the village anyway. Stop and Shop is not withinthe the village. Neither is Burger King, McDonalds, or Shoprite. I think Wendy's may have been. Now Starbucks, that disgusting smell of charred moldy earth, sits right smack dab in the middle of the village. Ever see the wannabe homeless kids who pretend to be without means and beg on the streets with a cup of Starbucks in their hand? I think it is the funniest/saddest thing I have ever seen.

P.S. One of them asked me for change while talking on her cell phone....LOL
