They're for mosquito control that some cities and towns use.

Isn’t that dangerous?

Yes it was, but that was back in 1966 ~ 1969, and the dangers weren't readily known until 1969 but they didn't actually ban DDT until 1972.

Back then, all the kids on the street ran behind it without knowing the dangers and because parents were also not aware, they didn't think anything of it either.

Some still think DDT is not as harmful as they claimed it was.

That's possible... I mean, there have been at least thousands of kids... myself included... who inhaled the smoke they pumped out from behind those fog trucks and at least I am as healthy as can be... (i.e. no side effects of inhaling it!)

I cannot speak for others, but maybe it made me stronger because of it? Who can say for sure? I also inhaled 2nd hand smoke of my mother when I was a kid and have smoked more than 600,000 cigarettes 1st hand myself over the past 44 years and have no breathing issues what so ever either!
