Sec. 28-1. Traffic.
(a) Speed limit; etc. No person shall drive a vehicle at a rate of speed in excess of twenty-five (25) miles an hour over the roads within park enclosures, and no person shall drive within such enclosures except on the roadways; nor shall any vehicle except vehicles used exclusively for passengers be permitted to enter the park enclosures at any time, except by consent of the director of recreation and cultural services.
(b) Powers of city manager. The city manager shall expressly have authority and power to impose police regulations for the control of traffic and parking in the public parks and the public cemeteries as in his discretion may seem most to the public interest, including, but not by way of limitation, the power to fix a lower maximum speed limit than twenty-five (25) miles an hour on the roads, or any portions thereof, within such parks or cemeteries; to prohibit other than one-way traffic upon any such road, or portion thereof; to set aside spaces on such roads in which no parking shall be permitted; and to regulate, as well as prohibit, the use of all off-the-road motorized vehicles, which classification of vehicles shall include, but is not limited to, trailbikes, minibikes and four-wheel-drive all-terrain vehicles, within such parks or cemeteries or any portion thereof; provided, however, that no such regulation shall be effective until signs are erected, or the roads otherwise marked so as to apprise an ordinarily observant person of the existence of such regulation. Thereafter, it shall be unlawful for any person to fail to comply with the requirements of such signs. (Code 1959, § 23-1; Ord. of 10-26-76; Ord. No. O-81-106, § 1, 5-26-81)
