If you own or operate a golf cart in Pooler, make sure you know the new laws.
On Monday, police began registering motorized golf carts for $15. Residents who do not register their golf cart by April 1 will have to pay a fine. The motorized cart ordinance was put into place after police in Pooler received reports of children getting hurt while riding around unsupervised.
"Pooler being a growing community, we have numerous residential areas, about 100 neighborhoods, and with that comes golf carts," said Pooler Police Department Chief Mark Revenew. "We want our citizens to use alternative forms and we appreciate that, but we have had some unsafe incidents. This is a way of us better controlling it without being overly restrictive."
The new ordinance prohibits people from using golf carts near U.S. Hwy 80 or Pooler Parkway. Sidewalks are also off limits. Children under the age of 12 are not allowed to operate golf carts and children ages 12 to 15 must have adult supervision. In order to use at night, golf carts must comply with state law regarding lighting.
