New law aims to improve public safety on Florida roads.
St. Johns County, Florida, is home to a number of golf cart friendly communities. So it’s important to know the laws related to operating a golf cart on public streets. And the current law is about to change. Right now, teens as young as 14 years old can drive a golf cart on the street. But come July 1, a new law goes into effect that limits the operation of golf carts to the following:
- Individuals at least 15 years old who hold a valid learner’s permit
- Licensed drivers aged 16 years and older
- Anyone 18 years old or older with a valid state ID
Residents in Nocatee, Beachwalk, Rivertown, Beacon Lake and many other communities will want to be aware of the new law, which you can read more about here.
