Golf Cart Road List Expansion
The operation of golf carts has now been expanded to include any City street with a posted speed limit of 25 miles per hour or lower.
As per approved City Commission Ordinance Sec. 66-6, even on approved streets, golf carts and their operators must meet certain requirements. To operate a golf cart you must have a valid driver’s license or be 14 years of age and accompanied by someone with a valid driver’s license. When operated during the daylight hours (between sunrise and sunset), golf carts must be equipped with:
- Efficient braking system
- Rearview mirror
- Red reflectorized warning devices on both the front and rear
- Reliable steering apparatus
- Safe tires
Designated Golf Cart Crossings
- Hwy 77 and 9th Street
- Hwy 389 (12th St.) and Illinois Ave.
- Hwy 389 (12th St.) and Iowa Ave.
For nighttime use (after sunset or before sunrise), golf carts must also be equipped with integrated headlights, brake lights, turn signals and a windshield. These rules and other relevant traffic regulations will be enforced similar to any other motor vehicle.
