Golf Carts and ATVs: Did You Know?

We've received questions and comments recently about golf carts on 90th Avenue. For clarification, we can advise that Florida law allows golf carts to operate on the roadway as long as they meet the criteria of being “street-legal” (converted to low-speed vehicles).

  • A low speed vehicle (LSV) is a vehicle with a top speed greater than 20 MPH, but not greater than 25 MPH.
  • LSVs must be registered and titled.
  • Must be insured with personal injury protection (PIP) and property damage liability (PDL) insurance.
  • Any person operating an LSV must have a valid drivers license.
  • LSVs may only be operated on streets where the posted speed limit is 35 MPH or less.

LSVs must be equipped with the following safety equipment:

  • Windshield
  • Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
  • Exterior mirrors (Driver-side and interior rear-view or passenger side)
  • Headlamps
  • Parking brake
  • Front and rear turn signals
  • Seat belt for each designated seat
  • Reflex reflectors
  • Tail lamps and stop lamps
