Golf Cart violations

Albany - You may see them on city streets, but you shouldn't. Golf carts are allowed on golf courses, but shouldn't be driven on public roads.

City Commissioner Dorothy Hubbard wants police officers to begin ticketing people who illegally drive golf cart, go carts and four-wheelers. She says it's a matter of safety.

"People have talked about people on the carts not wanting to move over while drivers are going down the street. That's one of the issues," she said.  "If someone bumped one of those people on the golf carts, if they had children and that kind of thing, it could be dangerous, so we're trying to prevent accidents from happening in our city and keep all of our citizens safe."

The first time you're caught, you'll get a warning, but after that, expect a ticket!
