Reference the proposal by two City Council members to ban a mobile billboard on the grounds that, "it's basically a mobile scrolling billboard with no other purpose than to be a mobile scrolling billboard."
What's next? Will we soon get a proposed ban against furniture delivery trucks that are driven around with no other purpose than to deliver furniture?
Assuming mobile billboards are not illegal, this proposal seems to be a particularly egregious example of council members overstepping their authority by dictating how a legitimate business can operate.
