Street Legal Carts and DOT Approved Windshields: We Can Help

Golf cars have become extremely popular, especially in states with warmer climates such as Florida.
They are used for golfing, camping, hauling and to amuse the grandkids. They help seniors and those
with disabilities maintain their independence and they are a great way to get around on a large
property.

They are even more handy when they can be driven on the road. When your cart is street legal, you
could make a quick trip to the grocery store or bank without using any gas. Many couples can even save
money by scaling back to one car instead of two if they have a street legal golf cart.

To make a golf cart street legal in Florida, you need efficient brakes, reliable steering and safe tires.
Well, duh, who wouldn’t have that going on already? But you also need a rearview mirror and reflective
warning devices in the front and rear. There is a statute addressing horns or other warning devices; and,
if you want to drive at night, your golf cart needs to be equipped with headlights, turn signals and a DOT
approved windshield.
