Last 'no cruising' sign removed in Sacramento; lowriders rejoiced

Following a monthslong back-and-forth between city officials and area lowriders over an anti-cruising ordinance, the last "no cruising" sign was removed Friday in Sacramento. The sign was located along Broadway near Front Street, and the Sacramento Lowrider Commission hosted a celebration event that same day at the California Automobile Museum in response. The anti-cruising ordinance sparked a debate on whether it should exist. Sacramento leaders including Mayor Darrell Steinberg said it is an unfair stereotype to associate lowriders with gangs or violence.
