§ 10-4-1 Declaration of purpose.

[2-2-2010; 2016 Code]
The council finds that unregulated operation of play vehicles on public streets, sidewalks, parking lots and other public areas is a hazard both to the public and to individuals operating such play vehicles because such operation tends to conflict with efficient and safe vehicular and pedestrian use of such areas. The council further finds that unregulated operation of play vehicles on private property without permission from the owner of such property is an infringement upon private property rights and leads to confrontations between property owners and persons riding such play vehicles.
