BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - Broken Arrow city leaders are working on adding a new element to the Rose District.
The city is expected to approve a new rule; allowing small electric vehicles to be driven on the streets of downtown.
The vehicles are smaller than a typical car and run on batteries. However, they will still need to be street legal with blinkers, horns and other equipment.
If approved, the ordinance would allow the small cars to drive in neighborhoods within a square mile of the Rose District, but not on major streets such as Kenosha or Elm.
Chamber of Commerce officials said the measure would add a unique element to the area.
The carts will drive between 20 and 25 miles per hour
