Getting on for 60 years ago, I'm sure Lyons Maid used to sell ice cream on bikes - bit like a tandem with a fridge each side on the back with a canopy over the top.

Poor air quality is a serious issue that has a serious negative effect on health. It seems to me that ice cream vans have used the same technology for decades, in fact some of the vans are decades old. No-one wants to have to fork out big sums of money, but it does from the outside at least look like an industry that's been able to coast on old, polluting technology for a long time. It's issues like this that cry out for a government green investment bank that can lend to companies on generous terms to help them transition to cleaner tech. Turns out we had one in the UK until the Tories, er... sold it.

Speaking of decades old, a skim through eBay found a 2007 ice cream van for the princely sum of £42k plus vat. Thats alot strawberry splits and 99s.

If the council want to reduce air pollution they should stop buses running their engines when they are stood for some time. I now they have some non diesel but, the ones that are not, smell horrible.

No but there will be helpful shoves. £2k from the government (if the car isnt over £40k new), tax incentives, fuel shortages.....

As a vehicle it's clearly not worth that much, which suggests there are hefty profits to be made selling ice cream

Why don't the ice cream persons use bicycles , stop me and buy one , they could parade up and down Fargate , Pinstone Street to their hearts content , no licence needed , no fumes , the bikes could be electric power , Electricity comes from outer space , so fill up at Council gas lamps . it makes sense dent it .

Progressive? Accepting?  Tolerant? forward thinking?

 

The moment away from stereotypical gender pronouns is not a new concept. It has been on the rise since at least 2015.
