Kannapolis has become the latest municipality in the Charlotte region to consider letting people drive golf carts on city streets.
On Monday, Kannapolis City Council had a first reading of an ordinance that would allow golf carts on certain streets, the Salisbury Post reported.
Towns such as Landis, China Grove and Granite Quarry have adopted similar laws for golf carts in recent months, it reported.
The Kannapolis law would require golf cart drivers to be at least 16, have a valid driver’s license, maintain insurance as required for motor vehicles and register the cart with the Kannapolis Police, the Post reported. Headlights and tail lights would be required. Golf carts would be permitted only on streets that have a speed limit under 35 mph.
Golf cart drivers could be charged with drunk driving.
