(a) No minor child under the age of sixteen years, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian, shall be permitted to play any mechanical amusement device; provided, that such minor child shall not be prohibited from operating and playing any pool table, equipped as a mechanical amusement device, if suitable proof of age, such as Michigan driver’s license or nondriver’s identification shall be presented upon demand.
(b) Any person owning, controlling or having general supervision of any premises in which a mechanical amusement device is located shall not permit any minor child under the age of sixteen years to play such machines unless such child shall be accompanied by parent or legal guardian.
(c) At any place within the City of Flint where a mechanical amusement device is located there shall be conspicuously posted a sign no smaller than one square foot in area, containing the warning: “It is unlawful for persons under sixteen years of age to play these machines unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian,” such sign shall be located within ten (10) feet of any mechanical amusement device, unless it can be demonstrated impractical to do so, at which point the sign(s) may be posted in some other conspicuous place. If more than five (5) devices are located in any building an additional sign containing the language set forth above shall be required to be posted in close proximity to such additional machines. Additional signs shall be required to be posted as the number of mechanical amusement devices increases in the same ratio of one to five. Failure to post signs as set forth above shall be a violation of this article.
