A reminder here from the OPP: golf carts are not roadworthy.
While there are a number of new types of vehicles on the roads these days, like e-bikes and what not, the OPP points out these qualify as Low Speed Vehicles (LSV) as they have specific features: odometer, speedometer, windshield defrosting and defogging systems, and doors for occupants.
A golf cart lacks all these features in most cases, and as such, the driver could faces charges including:
- Operate motor vehicle on roadway with no automobile insurance ($5000 fine)
- Operate motor vehicle without required equipment
- Operate motor vehicle with no Vehicle Permit
- Operate motor vehicle on roadway with no driver’s licence (applicable to youth with no driver’s licence)
- No odometer
