Santa Clara County bans drive-by birthday parties

The article doesn't say why, but apparently they were already illegal. Maybe some kind of anti-cruising law? :eh?:

Local police chiefs say they'll shake their fingers vigorously at anyone they catch doing it.
For weeks, people across the Bay Area have lined up in car parades to celebrate birthdays, show off classic vehicles and cheer up neighbors — sometimes driving alongside members of law enforcement agencies and local officials, who joined in celebrations like the one honoring “Rosie the Riveter” on her 100th birthday last month.

But those gatherings are now expressly forbidden in Santa Clara County, according to new guidance issued by local officials — much to the chagrin of community members and school districts who had planned their own upcoming drive-by celebrations in lieu of traditional pomp and circumstance.

“The reality is that the rule has always been there, the prohibition has always been in place — but we recognize the issue was not clear to some people,” deputy Santa Clara County executive David Campos said Wednesday.
