Florida Supreme Court Won't Hear Appeal of Coral Gables Pick-Up Truck Ban

The Florida Supreme Court decided not to hear an appeal of the ruling from the Third District Court of Appeals upholding the constitutionality of the Coral Gables ordinance banning overnight pick-up trucks in the City.  The Third District Court reasoned that the ordinance banning pick-up trucks did not impinge on a fundamental right and the ordinance bore a rational basis to a legitimate governmental interest of preserving the aesthetic qualities of the City.
