NON-HIGHWAY IMPLICATIONS OF ROADSIDE VENDING ACTIVITY IN SELECTED TEXAS COUNTIES. FINAL REPORT
This report documents non-highway and non-maintenance issues associated with roadside vending within five high activity locations in Texas. The issues under investigation included an assessment of the extent of sales tax avoidance by itinerant merchants, public health and safety aspects of food sales from highway rights-of-way, an analysis of the impact of roadside vending on established (non right-of-way) businesses, and traffic and safety considerations from the perspective of local law enforcement agencies. In addition, a detailed analysis of selected roadside sites was conducted to document the observed effects of roadside selling activity on the highway right-of-way.
