To help keep everyone safe, the Mount Pleasant Police Department would like to remind everyone of the South Carolina laws governing golf cart use:

*A person operating a golf cart must be at least sixteen years of age and have a valid driver’s license.

*A golf cart may only be operated during daylight hours and must be within four miles of the address on the registration certificate.

*The golf cart must have a registration certificate from the DMV and have liability insurance.

*During daylight hours a permitted golf cart may operate along a secondary highway or street for which the posted speed limit is thirty-five miles an hour or less.

*During daylight hours a permitted golf cart may be operated within four miles of a point of ingress and egress to a gated community and only on a secondary highway or street for which the posted speed limit is thirty-five miles an hour or less.

The fine for driving without a license is $232.50 and the fine for driving without insurance is $440.00.
