" Translated, LaHood and the Transportation Department are calling for an end to distractions caused by our in-car infotainment systems, which are increasingly relying on touch screens to operate and bringing navigation, music and even social networking apps into the cabin of our rides.

The legendary Proposition 13, known as the Jarvis-Gann Initiative of 1978, is under constant assault by our state government. With the current unpopularity of raising taxes in California -- and throughout the United States for that matter -- Sacramento politicians see the low rate of property taxes guaranteed by Proposition 13 as a hurdle they must overcome.

As the City Council appears ready to grant two of this city’s biggest retail destinations permission to post billboard-sized ads on their exteriors, it might be wise to take a step back and observe how quickly such zoning deals can turn into a mess.
