State Rep. Aaron Miller this week testified before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee in support of his legislation to allow golf carts in small towns to be driven on the right side of state trunk lines as long as certain safety provisions are met.
In Michigan, a village or city of fewer than 30,000 residents may adopt a resolution allowing golf carts to be operated on streets. However, the law currently prevents individuals from operating a golf cart on state trunk lines. In many small communities, parts of town are connected by only a state trunk line.
Miller said the bill would allow for residents in many small communities to maintain safety while using their golf carts.
Mark Honeysett, village manager from the village of Constantine, testified in support of the bill.
House Bill 4945 introduced by Rep. Miller remains under consideration by the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
