A.    Except as otherwise provided, no person shall stand or park any motorized vehicle from which goods, wares, merchandise, fruits, vegetables or foodstuffs are sold, displayed, solicited or offered for sale on any portion of any street within the city, except that such vehicle may stand or park at any one location for a period of time not to exceed thirty minutes and, regardless of the length of time that such standing or parking has occurred at any location, shall not stand or park again for a period of four hours within five hundred feet of such location. The provisions of this subsection shall not apply to persons delivering, leaving, handing over or surrendering any goods, wares or merchandise previously ordered or purchased by a patron or customer.

B.    No person shall park or stand on any street any pushcart or similar nonmotorized vehicle or conveyance from which tamales, peanuts, popcorn, candy or other articles of food or refreshment are sold or offered for sale without first obtaining a written permit to do so from the city, which permit shall designate the specific times and locations where such nonmotorized vehicle or conveyance may stand.

C.    No person shall park or stand any vehicle, or wagon, used or intended to be used in the transportation of property for hire, on any street while awaiting patronage for such vehicle or wagon without first obtaining a written permit to do so from the city, which permit shall designate specific location where such vehicle may stand.

D.    No person shall deposit, leave, place or park in any street any cement mixer, concrete mixer, wheelbarrow, pushcart, or other hand-drawn or hand-propelled vehicle in such manner or for such a time as to interfere with traffic, either vehicular or pedestrian, in or upon such street, or in such a manner as to constitute a hazard to traffic or to the safety of persons or property in and upon such street, or fail to immediately remove the same upon order of police or traffic officer of the city; provided, however, that the traffic authority shall have the right and power to authorize, in writing, for limited periods of time, the placing or parking of any such vehicle on any street in such manner as will not constitute a nuisance or a hazard to life or property or unreasonably interfere with traffic in or upon such street.

E.    No person shall, for any period in excess of one hour, park or leave standing on any highway in the city or in any city-owned parking facility, a vehicle in or upon which is displayed a sign or other writing indicating that said vehicle is available for sale or rent. The terms “park” and “highway” as used herein shall have the respective meanings set forth in Sections 463 and 360 of the Vehicle Code. Any vehicle so parked or standing for a period of longer than seventy-two hours may be removed in the manner provided by law.

F.    Whenever any permit is issued pursuant to the provisions of this chapter and a particular location to park or stand is specified therein, no person shall park or stand any vehicle, wagon, or pushcart at any location other than that designated in such permit. If the holder of any such permit is convicted in any court of competent jurisdiction for violating any of the provisions of this chapter, such permit shall be forthwith revoked by the city council upon the filing of the record of such conviction with the city council, and no permit shall thereafter be issued to such person until six months have elapsed from the date of revocation.

G.    Notwithstanding any other provisions of this title, no person shall sell, offer for sale, give away, solicit the sale of, or expose for sale in or upon any street, sidewalk or parkway within the city, any foods, goods, wares or merchandise, fruits, vegetables, peanuts, popcorn, candy, ice cream, confections or other articles of food within two hundred feet of the nearest property or boundary line of any public, private or parochial school or school grounds; and no person shall sell, offer for sale, give away, solicit the sale of, or expose for sale any of such articles or commodities in, or on the grounds of, any such school without first having obtained the written consent of an authorized official of any such school.
