With the growing number of communities allowing the use of golf carts on public roads it is important now more than ever to protect yourself and your customers. One way to protect yourself is to know the laws and make sure that your carts adhere to all requirements.

These are the state requirements you must also find out what your city requirements are before you can be sure your golf cart is road worth. To determine what your city requirements are you should first go to your city’s website and do a search to see if there are any ordinances indicating additional requirements or rules regarding golf carts.
