(FORT BRANCH) - Parents in a southwestern Indiana town now face big fines if their kids leave their toys behind in the community's streets.

The Fort Branch Town Council approved a ban Wednesday on toys on its streets that will cost offenders $50 for their first offense and $100 for the second one.

The Princeton Daily Clarion reports the town's police department will determine what the penalty will be for a third or subsequent offenses.

Marshal Rick Sides told council members he recently saw two streets in the town about 20 miles north of Evansville where pieces of steel and a pipe were set up as ramps for skateboarders.

He says kids have also been playing hockey and basketball in the streets and the problem is worsening, posing a public safety threat.
