Police remind Culver golf cart drivers of rules, regulations

The Culver Police Department would like to remind citizens of the town's golf cart regulations.

Please be aware that in order to operate a golf cart in town, you must obtain a golf cart registration and sticker. This can be done at Town Hall during regular business hours (Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 to 10 a.m.).

The cost is $25. Please provide proof of proper or adequate insurance on the cart, as well as the year, make and serial number of the cart. The sticker must be affixed to the rear of the cart. The golf cart must have a rear view mirror and regulation size slow moving vehicle emblem, which should be attached to the rear of the golf cart. When necessary, it also should have working head lamps and tail lamps/red flashing light visible from a distance of 500 feet.

The golf cart operator must be a licensed driver and be able to provide proof. When operating the cart, no more passengers than seating allows may ride and passengers must be seated at all times while the cart is in operation. Golf carts are not allowed in the town park and carts must abide by all state traffic laws.

A complete copy of the golf cart ordinance is available at Town Hall or on the golf cart registration. Please call Town Hall at 574-842-3140 with any questions.
