Jackson prepares to issue golf cart permits | New

JACKSON — The city of Jackson is preparing to begin issuing permits for the use of golf carts and low-speed vehicles on city streets. City workers are installing signs governing access to city streets.

Under the Golf Cart Ordinance, approved by Jackson City Council in June, golf carts and low-speed vehicles are defined as personal four-wheel vehicles (PTVs) that cannot exceed 25 mph. Vehicles must be registered at the Town Hall and display a sticker. The registration fee is $25 per vehicle. Drivers must be 18 years or older and hold a valid Georgian driver’s license. Drivers must also obey all traffic rules and cannot drive on sidewalks.
