Venezuela’s Chavez banning beer trucks from sales on the street

Venezuela’s president has a new public enemy: beer trucks. President Hugo Chavez said yesterday he is fed up with seeing beer trucks sell alcohol directly on the streets of poor neighborhoods.

“It’s the degeneration of society. It’s one of the causes of public drunkenness in the slums,” he said as he declared he was putting a ban on the beer runs.  The Boston Herald reports.
