We have recently received some complaints and questions regarding golf carts vs. low-speed vehicles.
When it comes to golf carts, the code section is 46.2-916.3. Here’s what you need to know: In Chesterfield County, golf carts are not allowed on any public highway (roads in subdivisions are considered highways). In fact, they are only allowed in areas with golf courses. So, if you aren't using the vehicle to cross from one golf course to another, or from the golf course to your house on a road with a speed limit no more than 35 mph, you can't do it. (Your house must be within one-half mile distance from the course.)
Low-speed vehicles, which are covered by Virginia code sections 46.2-908.2 and 46.2-908.3, may be operated on public highways where the maximum speed limit is no greater than 35 miles per hour and their use has not been prohibited by posted signs. Low-speed vehicles must be titled and registered and they must be operated by a licensed operator. Every low-speed vehicle operated on a public highway must have the following equipment: head lights, brake lights, tail lights, reflex reflectors, an emergency or parking brake, an externally mounted rearview mirror, an internally mounted rearview mirror, a windshield, one or more windshield wipers, a speedometer, an odometer, braking for each wheel, a safety belt system, and a vehicle identification number.
When it comes to golf carts and low-speed vehicles, it is important to know what you’re driving and where you’re permitted to drive it. If you’re not sure if your vehicle qualifies as a low-speed vehicle, read Virginia code sections 46.2-908.2 and 46.2-908.3.
