  2. Location On Street:  All vehicles shall be driven in the right-hand lane available for traffic or as close as practicable to the right-hand curb or edge of the roadway. Each driver operating a horse-drawn carriage shall maintain the horse at a speed no faster than a walk or slow trot. Passenger loading and unloading will not be allowed on Main Street. Double parking should be avoided to the greatest extent feasible.

  3. Approved Locations: Horse-drawn carriages may only operate on approved local streets that have a posted speed limit of twenty-five (25) mph or less, unless crossing over an unauthorized street in accordance with the rules of the road and at a signalized intersection or with the specific assistance of an on-duty City police officer. The City will designate the approved streets or areas that horse drawn carriages may operate in by developing an approved map. The police department will also designate appropriate carriage stand locations where carriages can park as they load and unload passengers.
