To the Editor:
We do not need food trucks on the streets of Alexandria. We have plenty of food outlets, restaurants, along King and Washington streets. Food trucks would take away business from the existing food outlets. They would also clog already busy streets.
Our streets have buses, cars, UPS, Fed Ex and construction trucks who are constantly double parked. We don't need more planned congestion. Our Old Town parking is at a premium and food trucks would take up parking space.
I was in D.C. the other day and saw hundreds of food trucks taking up parking spaces and double parked. They are ugly.
