Ice Cream Trucks: Stranger (No) Danger?

Weird the Normal

Ice Cream Trucks: Stranger (No) Danger?

Ice cream trucks fascinate me.

Not just because they deliver happiness on wheels. Or that the neighbors don’t mind the funky music. It’s the fact that “stranger danger” logic need not apply, especially considering their target population is children.

Think about it - it’s basically a van. For a child, approaching a stranger’s vehicle is a no-no and eating a stanger’s food is a recipe for disaster, or so we’re told. But both are void when the van’s got posters of treats and the child is walking up with money in hand.

Additionally, the ice cream truck is usually a well-built metal fort with only a small serving window. So if you happen to get inside, there are lots of places you could be out of sight. It’s also meant to be driven around neighborhoods which means a “quick getaway” has a solid business justification.

Anyway, here are some images:
