New York City's food cart and truck vendors work harder than just about anybody to keep their food safe: they've got to draw a ton of customers on a regular basis just to make ends meet. We hope inspectors don't use their power to wage war on them.

New York’s “dirty water” hot dog vendors may need to clean up their act.
The city’s health department on Friday said the 5,500 food carts and trucks that work New York’s streets will have to display letter grades, from A to C, judging their compliance with food-safety laws, just as restaurants have done since 2010. The new rule takes effect next month, kicking off a citywide inspection process that will take two years.
