Those with San Francisco's Department of Public Works say they will have crews in the city six days a week for enforcement and if a high number of street vendors switch neighborhoods, they will move accordingly.

A popular street vending spot in San Francisco's Mission District was left deserted on Tuesday on the first day of permit enforcement.After weeks of warning street vendors about required permits, the City of San Francisco started enforcing rules Tuesday.

It's an effort to crack down on the sale of stolen goods and to try to make certain areas in San Francisco safer.In a video recorded Tuesday above the 24th and Mission BART station, no street vendors can be seen, the same area had dozens of street vendors Monday. "This time yesterday we couldn't be talking right now because we'd be standing on top of somebody," said SFPD Sgt. Anthony Montoya.

The City of San Francisco is now requiring that vendors have permits to sell. The city's public works department, with the help of San Francisco police and Bart police, is now enforcing those permits at 24th and Mission, 16th and Mission, UN Plaza, and Chinatown. "Very good now. Beautiful! Very nice," said Jose Noguera who lives in the Mission District. A translator told us he said, "he feels much safer now it's more clearer before it was too crowded, too dangerous, and afraid of getting stabbed."

👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 I can actually through the plaza to get to BART without stepping over stolen merchandise being sold!! 👍🏽

Wow! Amazing!

Asking the obvious: WHY, pray tell, have we not had Enforcement of existing laws going on all along?

Help them get permits

Wait. Let me get this straight. San Francisco can actually enforce laws?! Can we use this magic to clean up other neighborhoods? Seems odd they couldn’t prevent the goods from being stolen before being hawked, but hey! A step in the right direction.
