ATLANTA -- 100,000 people are expected to come to Atlanta every day this weekend, with thousands of them passing 5 Points and the Underground.
It's a hot spot for street vendors selling everything from t-shirts to fresh fruit to souvenirs. But now they are gone.
It's a crackdown by Atlanta Police enforcing a city ordinance (Section 138.15-Obstructing sidewalks) that prohibits street vending.
The push started last December when a Judge threw out a city plan for street vendors to get licenses from a single company.
It picked up speed last week, just before opening day of the Braves and the upcoming Final Four Weekend.
Vendors who stay in business face stiff fines and jail time.
"The city is going to take a look at other major cities and how they handle public property vending. Look at best practices, what works and what doesn't work," said Carlos Campos of the Atlanta Police Department.
