(CHATSWORTH) - Grey Bruce Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is reminding residents that golf carts are not considered Low Speed Vehicles (LSV) and are not permitted on our roadways.

New types of vehicles and devices arrive in the market place every day. The Ontario Provincial Police recognize the importance of these new market innovations as they expand mobility options for Ontarians and provide an environmentally friendly way to travel.

In Canada, all vehicles and transportation devices must be reviewed under both provincial and federal laws for safety.

Low Speed Vehicle's must have the following features:

Windshield defrosting & defogging system and
Occupant compartment doors
Turn signal lamps
Parking brake
A maximum speed capability
Bear a Vehicle Identification Number
Have seat belt assemblies present

Golf Carts

Although golf carts may resemble low-speed vehicles, they typically do not meet the requirements for low-speed vehicles. Golf carts are not permitted on roadways in Grey and Bruce County.

There are many Highway Traffic Act offences that a person could be charged with if found operating a golf cart on a roadway. Some of these offences include:

Operate motor vehicle on roadway with no automobile insurance ($5000 fine)
Operate motor vehicle without required equipment
Operate motor vehicle with no Vehicle Permit
Operate motor vehicle on roadway with no driver's licence (applicable to youth with no driver's licence)
No odometer
