Taco vendors defend their Lincoln Heights turf

Tensions are apparently running high in the taco truck and sidewalk cart business. El Chavo!, who blogs on LA Eastside, got caught up in the action when he was taking photos of a new, covert taco spot that springs up nightly, and illegally, on a Lincoln Heights street corner:

“Those that run them are a bit wary of fools taking pictures of them: I got chased down by two cars and had to explain my motives for taking the pictures … I think they thought I was a health-department or annoying-neighbor rat instead of someone that values their presence.”
