Golf Carts are a Common Sight in Central Florida

In The Villages, the most popular mode of transportation is the golf cart.  Whether it is to the grocery store, golf course or out to dinner, most “Villagers” utilize a golf cart.  Golf carts are also a common place in Tavares, which has four charging stations in its downtown for golf carts.

In some areas, operators must be at least 15 years old and have a driver’s license or learner’s permit.  In addition, most municipalities are now requiring that golf carts be insured. In Fruitland Park, operators are required to receive a $30 decal before their golf carts are “street-legal.”

Drivers of golf carts must obey all state and local traffic laws, and will be pulled over for violations such as driving on the sidewalk or driving under the influence.  Even though a golf cart is not a car, operators should drive defensively (especially when taking turns in order to avoid flipping the carts or ejecting passengers).
