MANATEE COUNTY – You may notice more golf carts around the Bay area. On September 1, 2010 a state law that prohibits residents from riding their golf carts on sidewalks will change. A clause in House Bill 971 has been approved, allowing counties to permit golf cart use on designated sidewalks with proper signs. As of now, Manatee County has not mandated where golf carts can go.
Despite the possible changes, law enforcement officials want to remind golf cart drivers they should never travel on roads. They say doing so is not only dangerous, it’s also illegal and could result in a ticket.
Also, until the county mandates where golf carts can go, drivers can still be ticketed for traveling on sidewalks in certain areas.
