Obviously the city is messing with him to get him to shut down/move. I am sure the complaints on this business must be through the roof. But, why can't the owner just grow up a little, be respectful of families and neighborhoods, and open his business somewhere that isn't beside schools and churches? I guess if you have young bikini clad women making money for you, you don't have enough personal standards to consider the community's best interests.

well said dave- but would you wish to live next to a Bikini car wash, a crack house, or in a gang dominated neighborhood?- afterall you would not wish to "trample on other peoples rights"- especially- freedom of association, freedom of expression, freedom of Choice, and the right to the pursuit of happiness....

well, crack houses and gangs are not legal, so i could do something about that. the bikini car wash I wouldnít mind, but if I did, I would be out of luck. It is there legal right to open.

If the people around the car wash donít want it there, then confront the zoning allowing it. Donít come up with bs reason to shut them down. If they fail, tough. What if there was a Christian book store wanting to open next to my strip club, or bar, or some other ďsin businessĒ what right would I have to protect my business from the bible beating bittys?

You know they would be trying to shut me down, and drive away my business. But thatís ok becauseÖumÖhum.. why? Who decides what is proper and what isnít?

This reminds me of people buying home next to a rail road track, then constantly calls and complains to the rail road because there is train noise.

The bottom line is, when you start limiting or taking away the rights of a particular group or person, you can not expect YOUR rights to be safe. There is a balance the must be struck, sometimes you donít get your way, but its worth it to maintain your own rights.

The smoking laws are a perfect example. Every non-smoker was for them and thinks they are great, what is happing now? Next on the agenda is fat people, and food. Now all of sudden all the people who were for the smoking bans are outraged because the government is trying to take away their right to eat a cheese burger! Or anything fried in the wrong kind of oil. Too late now folks, you have set a present. All they have to do is say its for the good of all, or for the children etc. hang on to your hats and leave this guy alone. If you donít like it donít go there.

I just had another thought. What would I do if I didnít like this business? I think I would talk to the owner and ask him if I could get everyone who doesnít like this carwash to pitch in some cash, can we put up an attractive fence that would shield view of the women actually washing the cars.

Then I would tell him how having the fence would help his business, driving guys to want to stop and see whatís going behind the fence. Let one or two girls hold signs in font if he must. That would at least help the situation, right?

I've seen those "girls" in their bikinis. They all have pot bellies and are very flabby. They really should put on some clothes as they have nothing to show.

They aren't doing anything illegal, and a bathing suit is an appropriate thing to wear for washing cars. Dave's fence point might be sensible, though.

I am glad they have closed this business down temporarily. The main reason is they are very close to a school. What kind of role model are these employees to school aged kids? Maybe some of you making comments on this post have no morals.

"What kind of role model are these employees to school aged kids?"

Well itís the same roll model the kids see on the beach, TV, movies, and they themselves wear the exact clothing.

This "itís too close to a school" thing is really getting silly. Any time they want to trample on someoneís rights, itís always for the good of the children. Kids are savvier that you give them credit for.

Sex is a natural thing; there isnít a guy out there my age who wasnít searching with their friend for their dads playboy stash. Having the internet and internet porn for ten plus years, if all the bible bittys were right, we should have rapists on every corner by now.

What is so immoral about this car was? Why kind of roll model are you when you trample peopleís rights just because you donít like what they are doing? Being a tyrant is far worse than showing some skin.

Wearing a bathing suit is somehow indicative of "no morals"? Get real.

Some people have trouble containing their own urges, and rather than taking responsibility for themselves they prefer to project the responsibility for those urges on to whatever excites their unseemly emotions. Kind of like the guys who get the most upset about male homosexuality are the same guys that, in tests, have a very high arousal at seeing depictions of male homosexuality. Some of these people are such hornos they can barely contain themselves when they see a girl in a bathing suit- so they decide there needs to be a law against girls in bathing suits.

A bikini car wash is not on par with hookers and crack houses. It's a freaking car wash, people. With bathing suits. Get the hell over it.

yes, I am sure the same folks hanging around the adult bookstore, and crack houses at 03:00 hours are not the same malingerers that will be loitering around the car Wash...
