A child from Wheeler Elementary School in Millard, California claimed that an ice cream truck driver from Frosty Treats was giving out ice cream in exchange for children’s addresses. This caused quite an uproar and had parents calling in to the company with complaints and inquiries. The driver who was accused was said to be devastated, as they had been working in that community for years and was one of their top sellers. Luckily, the accusation turned out to be a misunderstanding. Parents were still shaken though and demanded to know more about the drivers in their community.
Ice cream truck drivers have access to children and are normally trusted individuals that symbolize happy childhood summers. No parents had previously thought to question their trustworthiness until now. Millard parents wanted to make sure that the employees who roamed their streets in search of their children were safe. A manager from Frosty Treats assured parents and the media, that their drivers are safe. All drivers working for them must have a driver’s license, a clean driving record, and a clean background report. Anybody who applies for a job there goes through a background check before becoming a Frosty Treats driver. They must also go through their safety training program. Parents are happy to hear this news and plan to continue to support the company in the future. Nobody is saying who made up the accusations and for what reason, but the company is glad it turned out to be false. They have enjoyed serving their treats to their community for several years, and will surely be glad to continue doing so.
