BOONVILLE (AP) — Residents will soon be allowed to drive golf carts and all-terrain vehicles on the streets of a southwestern Indiana city.
The Boonville City Council voted 3-2 Tuesday night to approve the proposed ordinance even though the city’s police chief raised concerns about it.
The Evansville Courier & Press reports Chief Daryl Saltzman said he has safety concerns about ATVs and worries the police department doesn’t have the resources to register and enforce golf cart and ATV regulations. Saltzman says his officers have constant problems dealing with mopeds.
Mayor Pam Hendrickson says she expects changes will be made to the ordinance before it takes effect.
