Reminder: Golf cart safety

by: The Observer Staff

Lakewood Ranch Town Hall Inter-District-Authority is reminding residents of the rules and regulations of golf carts.

Florida law:
• prohibits carts to be driven on the sidewalks;
• requires all drivers to have a valid driver’s license and obey the traffic laws when operating a cart;
• only allows carts with headlights, brake lights, turn signals and a windshield to be on the designated roads before sunrise and after sunset;
• requires carts to have working brakes, steering, safe tires, a rearview mirror and red reflectors in the front and back, on the roadways;
• gives pedestrians the right of way before carts.
