The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee has approved legislation authored by State Rep. Aaron Miller to allow golf carts on state trunk lines in some small communities as long as certain stipulations are met.
Currently, 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, Constantine, for example, parts of town are connected by only such trunk lines.
Under current safety rules applicable to golf carts continue to apply under Miller’s proposal.
House Bill 4945 now moves to the full House for consideration.
