Ordinance bans teens from using golf carts

Posted: Updated:
BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

Leaders in one south Georgia city want to make sure kids stay off the roads in golf carts.

The Bainbridge City Council approved an ordinance that prohibits children under the age of 15 from operating golf carts, ATVs, or other similar vehicles on roads within the city limits.

That's already a state law.

No crashes have been reported, but officials say there have been a lot of close calls.

Violators will get warnings for 30-days before penalties are handed out.
