Anti-cruising law set to take effect
By DAN KULIN / Staff Writer
Drivers probably will have until near the end of the year to cruise downtown Hagerstown.
A new anti-cruising law is on pace to go into effect Dec. 29.
The City Council voted 4-1 Tuesday to introduce the anti-cruising law. A final vote on the law is expected Nov. 28.
The law would prohibit cruising along East Franklin and East Washington streets between Potomac Street and Cleveland Avenue from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Cruising is defined as driving past a point in the designated area three or more times during a two-hour period. Those caught cruising could be fined as much as $250.
