Golf Cart Inspections
The Wood County Sheriff’s Office is currently inspecting “street-worthy” golf carts for Wood County residents. Ohio Law allows the Sheriff to authorize such licensing in each county, as long as equipment standards are met on each vehicle. To be street legal, golf carts must have headlights, brake lights, tail lights, turn signals, windshield, horn, rear view mirror, license plate lights, and not capable of traveling over 20 mph. An Ohio operator’s license is required to operate the golf cart. There has to be a seat belt for every occupant on the golf cart, children must utilize child restraint seats as required by the Ohio Revised Code, and proof of Insurance must be presented at time of Inspection.
