Glad to know that I no longer need a saftey sticker on my car if driven in Seadrift. I dare some cop to ticket me for this if they allow golfcarts to be driven on the streets. Should make an interesting court case. Eat your heart out Port Oconnor.
I remember back in the 80's, I took a 4-wheeler down to Big Shell, off-loaded it on the beach and within 5 minutes I was spotted by a plane and surrounded by cops. They didn't ticket me or arrest me, but made me load it back up and informed me that any motorized vehicle must be "street legal" to have it on the beach.
Obviously, Hwy 185 is a state highway so will the drivers of the golf carts be subject to DPS rules and regulations if they're on the highway?
LOL LoveChild! But, that brings up another point...if someone leaves the bar after a few too many in a golf cart, would that be DWI or PI? Is it against the law to have an open container in a golf cart? This is liable to open up a big can of worms.
Do the carts have to be street legal? headlights, turn signals, etc.? Will they be able to go on the highways? Will they get a ticket for going too slow? I think this is a bad choice. What next, go-carts on the road? Someone will get hurt.
This will end as soon as an auto runs over one of the golf carts and kills somebody. Poor decision making on the city's part.
