Police chief reminds citizens of golf cart safety on city streets

PORT NECHES - By Justin Hinton, KFDM News

The Port Neches Police Department is urging golf cart drivers to follow proper laws, now that more are hitting the streets.

"They can get tickets in them. Have gotten tickets and will get tickets if they're not driven correctly," said Chief Paul Lemoine.

Lemoine says the weather is warming up meaning golf cart owners will start appearing on roadways.

He says on public streets, drivers will run stop signs, allow their children to take the wheel and even drive on the sidewalk, all dangerous and all against the law.

"Serious injuries or worse can occur if they have a collision with another vehicle or they just run off the road in a ditch or whatever," he said.

The end of last year a car struck a golf cart sending a man to the hospital.

He died before he made it to the hospital.

With Riverfest just around the corner, he said now is a good time to remember golf cart safety.

"The faster the other full size vehicles are traveling the more likelihood of something serious happening on them, so we want to stress the safety, follow the laws and have a good time," Lemoine said.
