Young people would come in automobiles to downtown Ironton on Friday and Saturday evenings and drive around a ten-block circle, waving their hands at people in the streets and at people in other vehicles, sometimes parking to chat or play at the game room. Some of them stop and get a soft drink or a beer. Some of the local people thought cruising to be a nuisance. Others didn’t mind. The Ironton Police Department kept it pretty well under control.
