MERRILLVILLE | People caught using motorized or off-road vehicles in certain areas of Merrillville could face fines.

An ordinance the Town Council adopted Tuesday prohibits people from using vehicles, such as dirt bikes, ATVs and mo-peds, on public property and on private property that is 10 acres or less.

A $500 fine is assessed for the first violation in a calendar year.

The use of off-road vehicles for law enforcement duties, functions of town government or farming operations are excluded from the ordinance.
