Golf Cart Bylaw

In order to clarify why the District adopted a Golf Cart Bylaw I wish to provide the following information:

It is illegal to drive golf carts on municipal or provincial roads and without the District approving the bylaw it would still be illegal to drive a golf cart anywhere on municipal or provincial roads.

In 2014 SGI made a number of legislative and regulatory changes around golf carts and power-assisted bicycles and defined golf carts in the regulations for The Traffic Safety Act, this then allows municipalities to pass bylaws governing the use of golf carts on roads and highways to travel to and from a golf course. The Bylaw is subject to SGI review and approval.
