Golf Carts

Golf Cart Safety

Golf carts are illegal on public roads in Florida and can only be used on private property unless the local municipality has an ordinance allowing them. Pinecrest does not have such ordinance so Florida law applies. They are not allowed on public sidewalks or roads. Low-speed vehicles (not the same as a golf cart) are allowed on streets where the speed limit is 35mph or less. 

A low-speed vehicle (LSV) is a vehicle with a top speed greater than 20 MPH, but not greater than 25 MPH. LSVs must be registered, titled and insured with personal injury protection (PIP) and property damage liability (PDL) insurance. Any person operating an LSV must have a valid driver license. Learn more about low-speed vehicles.
