The Chief of the Division of Fire is hereby authorized to establish fire lanes on either public or private property within the City, upon finding that the following conditions exist:
   (a)    That fire lanes are necessary for safeguarding life and property from the hazards of fire and explosion and for the use and occupancy of buildings and structures and adjacent property.
   (b)    That fire lanes are incident to a retail, commercial or manufacturing use, or other use where it can be reasonably expected that the public will assemble in sufficient numbers so that the presence of the public and their motor vehicles, if not controlled, will interfere with the operation of fire-fighting equipment and personnel and the egress and ingress of occupants in case of fire.
      (Ord. 73-20. Passed 4-23-73.)
