The Council has adopted Village of Chase Neighbourhood Golf Cart Bylaw No. 838-2017 on 9th day of May, 2017. The bylaw, will require golf carts to meet certain operating and vehicle upgrades to be considered a “Neighbourhood Golf Cart”.
Will golf carts be limited to 30km/hr?
The Motor Vehicle Act restricts the speed of golf carts to 32 km/hr. All other motor vehicles will be required to reduce their speed to 30 km/hr ONLY WHEN ENCOUNTERING A GOLF CART.
What do I need to do to my golf cart?
The golf carts will have to be equipped with seat belts, a horn, lights, signals and a rear-view mirror. Drivers will need ICBC insurance validated by the municipality, hold a valid driver’s licence and only drive the cart during the day. You will also require a Village Permit to operate.
