"Authorities" proposed that a $100 fine for every 24 hours the containers are not moved as a potential solution. Since a new container costs less than $3k, the fines would be more than the value of the container in less than a month.
Those fines have been proposed in places like....Los Angeles.
Additionally, Los Angeles has been in the news for it discontented homeless people.
Has anybody proposed stacking a bunch of these containers for use as ad hoc housing?
"But, but, but...they look like jail cells!" you might point out.
I am glad you brought that up. They would make excellent jail cells, too.
