Just What Exactly Makes A Golfcart Street Legal
A golf cart is a vehicle built to help golfers carry their stuff effectively as well as navigate the golf course with ease. But do you know that these carts are now used in streets as a common and Eco-friendly vehicle? Yes it is! “Street legal golf carts,” that is what they are called.
Street legal golf carts are still golf carts that have a dual purpose of being used in either a golf course for golf transportation or in street roads as a regular vehicle for transport. Street legal golf carts are cheap types of vehicles that provide an environmentally friendly ride to the general public in places like camping grounds, beaches, resorts, in a small residential community, in school campuses and grounds or any place you want.
However you must first have it registered to your local traffic safety agency for it to be legally able to run in the streets.
A street legal golf cart standard design is usually a four to six seat machine that is equipped with safety features. What makes this great for short distance transportation with your family is that because it can run to up to only a maximum of 35 miles per hour.
One safety feature of a street legal golf cart would be the headlights, basically used to illuminate the way during the night. Tail lights with reflectors to make it visible at night either while parking or while moving.
Another feature is the stop lights so that the vehicle behind you will know whenever you apply your brakes. Signal lights are another safety functions. This provides signaling capabilities with blinking action in the rear and back parts of the vehicle to the vehicles following as well as vehicles ahead and towards your direction.
Next items attached to it are side and center mirrors that provide visual contact either on the back side or at the center. Seat belts are also installed to provide a safety travel to the riding public. And it is fitted with warning features that will allow the driver to know that he must not exceed 20 miles per hour when navigating residential areas.
In closing, street legal golf carts are very good to use, handy, spacious and might soon replace gas operated cars to promote an Eco-friendly travel to the general public.
