The Washington State legislature has approved Senate Bill 6207, which would allow cities and counties to allow golf carts to be street legal by authorizing the creation of golf cart zones. The bill now travels to Governor Christine Gregoire.
The legislature voted 44-1 to allow golf carts to travel on public roads with speed limits of 25mph or below providing they have reflectors, rear view mirrors and seat belts installed. The bill also provides that drivers must be 16 and follow the road rules. Drivers who licenses have been revoked will not be allowed to drive a golf cart on a public road.
The comments on the Washington Votes web-sites are not too favorable to the bill.
