Our office has received reports of children driving golf carts in the community and on the trails. Golf carts are being driven across common areas which can cause damage. We have also had reports of people almost hit by golf carts on the hike and bike trails. If your family has a golf cart, please be sure to familiarize yourself and family with the below Frisco Golf Carts Ordinance.
Can golf carts legally be driven on city streets?
By city Ordinance, golf carts can be driven on city streets with a speed limit of 35 mph or less, as long as they meet the following criteria:
- The driver must have a valid driver’s license.
- The driver must have insurance for the golf cart.
- The golf cart must have headlamps, tail lamps, reflectors, and a slow-moving vehicle emblem.
- The golf cart must have mirrors and a parking brake.
Golf carts cannot be driven on roads that have speed limits higher than 35 mph, but they can cross such roads. Golf carts cannot be driven on sidewalks (other than golf course paths designated for golf carts).
Thank you for your kind cooperation!
