City Council Reminding Public About Golf Cart Regulations

By Betsy Finklea
The Dillon City Council would like to remind the public that there are state statutes governing golf carts and that these laws must be followed by citizens. The statute states the following:
SECTION 56-3-115. Golf carts; permit to operate on highways and streets. [SC ST SEC 56-3-115] The owner of a vehicle commonly known as a golf cart, if he has a valid driver’s license, may obtain a permit from the Department of Motor Vehicles upon the payment of a fee of five dollars and proof of financial responsibility which permits his agent, employees, or him to:
(1) operate the golf cart on a secondary highway or street within two miles of his residence or place of business during daylight hours only; and
(2) cross a primary highway or street while traveling along a secondary highway or street within two miles of his residence or place of business during daylight hours only.
The statute will be enforced by the City of Dillon Police Department.  The city council wants all citizens to be safe, and they don’t want anyone to get hurt.
