Three Rivers considers golf cart ordinance

Three Rivers municipal officials are considering an ordinance regarding the public’s use of golf carts on most city streets.
The proposed ordinance would require a person’s name and address, and details about the cart before they are allowed to operate the vehicle within city limits. The matter was discussed during the city commission’s Aug. 1 meeting.
Mayor Tom Lowry said further stipulations would require the operator to be at least 16 years of age and have a valid license, limit the speed to 15 miles per hour maximum, and require all passengers to be seated while the cart is in motion.
He said the proposed resolution would prohibit carts on streets that have a posted speed limit in excess of 30 miles per hour.
