Issue 42.03 - March, 2016 Reprinted with permission from the Property Owners Association of The Villages monthly Bulletin. "Golf carts can only operate on roadways where the posted speed limit is 30 MPH or less. LSVs and street legal golf carts can operate on roadways where the posted speed limit is 35 MPH or less. golf carts must use the MMPs where they are provided and they must ride on the far right-hand side edge of the roadway where they are not. NOTE- for all of the "golf cart mechanics" out there: GOLF CARTS CANNOT BE CAPABLE of exceeding 20 MPH. People think that "as long as I'm only doing 20 MPH on the roadways, it's ok if my cart can go faster". That is not what the state law says. The state law actually says your golf cart cannot have the capability of exceeding 20 MPH. so don't think you can travel 20 MPH on the roadways and then get on the golf cart path and go as fast as your cart will go. It is a misdemeanor resulting in a criminal citation if your golf cart can exceed 20 MPH. The citation requires a mandatory court appearance, and it is very expensive. Fines can be up to $500 and the judge can make you prove that the speed capability of the cart has been reduced to 20 MPH max. The SCSD does enforce speeding and stop sign traffic violations on the roadways.
