WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) Pedal carriages are now legal in West Lafayette. As News 18 previously reported, some companies that run the so-called "pedal bars" have sparked interest in the area.

Monday, the city council passed an ordinance ahead of their potential arrival. It regulates how long passengers can stay on the bar.

It also maps out appropriate routes, for example the pedal bars will not be allowed on State Street.

Mayor John Dennis said he wants businesses to be successful here but the city has to have some control.

"We're gonna make sure that the drivers are responsible and not allowing the passengers to get overly intoxicated and we are also going to make sure that things like plastic cups and cigarettes and those kinds of things aren't going to be disposed of while it's moving," said Mayor Dennis. 

Mayor Dennis said no companies have officially announced coming here at this point.
