The Police Department has been receiving complaints about golf cart use in neighborhoods and they have asked us to share the following information to help make sure everyone is aware of the current law related to golf carts. Below is a summary, as well as a link to the actual law.
· Golf carts must be operated within 4 miles of the address on the registration
· Low Speed Vehicles (LSV) may resemble golf carts, but they have “LSV” tags and registrations issued by the SCDMV. They can operate at night, unlike golf carts.
· Golf carts can only be driven on secondary streets or roads where the speed limit is 35 mph or less. Golf carts cannot operate on “primary roads” which have numbers, such as 29, 291, 123, 124, 183, 276 and 20 (which is Augusta Street).
