Boise’s City councilors passed an ordinance for one year that will allow tailgating in specified areas during the upcoming season.
We will take a wait and see position. The concept is certainly admirable, but we would hate to see someone charged with using a clear cup and fined. If coppers wouldn’t really cite someone for use of a clear cup for their beer, it shouldn’t be included in the ordinance. We also feel laws which are designed for specific groups fall under the category of “arbitrary and capricious” and violate the constitutional mandate for equal protection. Time will tell.
A reader suggests RED SOLO CUP video may have influenced some of the deciders.
