Several Fourth of July fireworks displays in Los Angeles County have been canceled due to new environmental regulations aimed at reducing pollution in local waters.
Though some fireworks shows were able to comply with the new permit requirements, at least one company, Pyro Spectaculars, said that they were unsafe.
The Los Angeles Times reported:[T]he L.A. Regional Water Quality Control Board adopted a protective fireworks display permit in late May, which requires new best practices aimed at reducing plastics and other pollution that could fall into oceans or marinas from fireworks displays.

A friend told me they are trying to pass a law in California making it illegal to wear sunglasses while driving. On your 3rd offense you lose your liscense.
That is stupid. Sunglasses, and blocking glare, are a safety issue.
. But what most do not know is that since 1959, California’s Vehicle Code prohibits wearing them while driving. Specifically, if the eyewear temple thickness is ½ an inch or thicker and blocks your side vision, it can pose safety hazard, interfering with your ability to see motorists and pedestrians adjacent to you. You can read the law here.
Can’t have patriotic displays you know...it would make the people feel patriotic.
If they ban fireworks displays, you can still see fireworks. There will be plenty of illegal fireworks throughout the Southland tomorrow night.
The cats aren’t pleased being cooped up inside for the past 4 days and again tomorrow from all the fireworks here every night.
That could bring nationalism, and with it... war.
So now the Left trashes fireworks. Where is the Leftist cult headed? it seems to me the end result is a mass Jim Jones suicide event.
CA DMV actually recommends wearing sunglasses: “...(glare section)...”wear polarized sunglasses”: https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/handbook/california-driver-handbook/safe-driving/
It is sunglasses with super wide temples (designer/hip-hop sunglasses) that are an issue (block lateral vision):
Oh yeah - stop the fireworks but let the homeless affluent runoff go straight to the ocean… retards.
This has nothing to do with the environment and everything to do with leftists using their power to stop patriotic celebrations.
This could be a problem.
All part of replacing July 4th and fireworks and airshows with Juneteenth and armed military drones flying in formation.
I’ll light a few fireworks in their honor.
“I don’t know how anybody could live in Los Angeles”
Orange County agrees.
LOL! As long as the person in the wagon seat isn’t wearing them! No problemo!
RE: law may ban sunglasses in car....
expanding the ban....
