CARMEL, Ind. — A woman in the right place at the right time snapped three photos of someone driving their SUV on the Monon Greenway Trail in Carmel. 

The photos were taken by Alisha Hiatt from the Monon Community Center. She said she saw the car enter the trail on 111th Street, drive north to 116th, then turn around and drive back to 111th Street. 

She posted the photos to Facebook and it picked up hundreds of comments from Carmel residents. Several said they can’t blame the driver for picking the only road in town without potholes. Others wondered if the car was an official city vehicle doing maintenance. 

News 8 reached out to Carmel Police Lieutenant Joseph Bickel, who said vehicles on the Monon Trail for official business will be marked. He said the silver SUV appears to be in violation of the city ordiance regarding unauthorized vehicles on the Monon Greenway. 

Violations could result in a citation or warning, according to Lt. Bickel.
