    Sec. 11-97-1. The corporate authorities of any municipality, whether incorporated under the general law or a special charter, may designate by ordinance the whole or any part of not to exceed 2 streets, roads, avenues, boulevards, or highways, under their jurisdiction, as public driveways, to be used for pleasure driving only, and to improve and maintain the same, and also to lay out, establish, open, alter, widen, extend, grade, pave, or otherwise improve and maintain not more than 2 roads, streets, or avenues, and designate them as pleasure driveways to be used for pleasure driving only. But these powers can only be exercised when the corporate authorities are petitioned to do so by the owners of more than two-thirds of the frontage of land fronting upon a proposed pleasure driveway.
