I don't know the laws regulating golf carts, but I was under the impression they were for closed neighborhoods only.

However, they're more numerous all over town.

They don't have lights, licenses, or reflectors that are visible in this fog we're having. Many don't adhere to courtesy driving laws, and run lights, stop signs, and cut in and out of moving traffic.

I understand cars and trucks do these things as well, but they're more stable and protected. If there are rules we need them enforced.

If no rules exist, some need to be developed for the protection of all.

Here's a link to the golf cart requirements and registration info for Galveston: https://www.galvestontx.gov/742/Golf-Cart-Registration

I agree these need be enforced. I've called the Traffic cops many times about a guy who consistently parks his cart on the sidewalk in front of a seawall bar.

Rules for people who ignore rules are useless. If enforcement isn't part of the rule it should not be passed.

We have many golf carts passing our house in the east end. I've never had a problem with them. I will say this, driving a cart on the street is dumb in our recent foggy weather.

And dangerous! Grandpas taking the grandkids for a dangerous ride. No protection at all.

The first sentence sums up the article.

NOTHING is illegal unless it's enforced....
