Breaking News from St. Johns County (including St. Augustine)... Golf Carts have been approved for county Roads.
Last night, the St. Johns County Commission passed an ordinance that opens county roads to golf cart traffic. St. John's County is one of the first counties in the state to have such an ordinance.
County engineers will have to evaluate each road to insure that they are eligible for golf cart traffic. The approved roads will then be clearly marked for use with golf carts.
Here are the rules:
- Operators must have a valid driver's license
- Vehicle cannot carry more than four people
- Vehicle cannot exceed 1,800 lbs (with passengers)
- Maximum speed limit is 25mph
Although we won't see carts on the road this weekend, we know it will be soon. What fun!
