'unfair and dangerous street trading'

The North Norfolk News offers the story of one UK locality's attempt to crack down on wily traders. The dangerous and unfair types: "burger vans, and two or three traders in a lay-by instead of one." You know government has become insane when the Chamber of Commerce spokesperson has the most sane response: that the boom in streetside trading is a "sign of the times" born out of people seeking low-cost business start-ups in the recession.
