Changes to state law and a resolution passed by the county commissioner’s court have paved the way for golf carts to be driven on public roads in unincorporated parts of the county.

As a result, golf carts are allowed on public roads with a maximum speed limit of 35 miles per hour, said Capt. Mark McGaffey, of the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office. Previously, golf carts in the unincorporated areas only were allowed to be driven on the beach or to and from a golf course if someone lived within 2 miles of that course.
