Golf Carts not permitted on Roadways

The use of motorized golf carts on the roadways in Ross Haven has now come to the attention of the Community Police Officers and the RCMP.

A motorized golf cart under the Traffic Safety Act is classified as an Off-Highway Vehicle

Under the Operator Licensing and Vehicle Control Regulation of the Traffic Safety Act, a motorized golf cart is defined as a ‘miniature vehicle’. A ‘miniature vehicle’ must not be registered as a motor vehicle.

Without registration and insurance a Motorized Golf Cart is not allowed on any roadway or highway. They must be used on private property only.

The Community Police Officers and the RCMP are now going to enforce the Traffic Safety Act in relation to motorized golf carts.
