LET'S ALL BE SAFE

ATV and GOLF CART SAFETY - Let's ALL Be SAFE!
Golf carts and all terrain vehicles were just not designed to be operated (especially by unsupervised children)  in the same high speed environment as larger motor vehicles. Did you know that Golf Carts and ATVs meet the statutory definition of a "motor vehicle"? As such, before they can legally be operated on public streets they must meet all of the various requirements and restrictions set forth by Alabama Motor Vehicle Code. (headlamps, front and rear turn signal lamps, tail lamps, and stop lamps, INSURANCE..........)
 
The Elmore County Sheriff's Department patrols our neighborhood and has advised they may stop and/or ticket any such driver/vehicle. Underage drivers on the county roads can be escorted home and ticket parents for allowing underage operation on the streets.  The vehicle can also be impounded.  
 
For everyone's safety, please ensure that we all abide by the laws regarding the operation of vehicles on public roads.
