Sheriff Champagne announces increased enforcement of unregistered and illegally operated golf carts.
The St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office has seen an increase in complaints regarding illegally operated golf carts on parish roadways. Our efforts to issue warnings and citations have not helped deter those driving golf carts illegally. Deputies have been instructed to step up enforcement of unregistered and illegally operated golf carts and issue citations to anyone who is an unlicensed driver and/or operating a golf cart not registered with our office per Parish Ordinance Number 18-1-11.
Parish Ordinance Number 18-1-11 allows for the legal operation of golf carts under several provisions in accordance with Louisiana Law. The list of Provisions can be found here https://www.stcharlessheriff.org/213/Golf-Cart-Registration. In addition to fines, golf carts are subject to being towed with the owner incurring related expenses.
Sheriff Champagne would like to thank those citizens who are following the rules and legally operating golf carts. You are helping to keep our roadways safe!
