More cities in St. Louis area are allowing golf carts on the road

Golf carts are no longer just for retirement communities in warm weather states, many cities are now allowing them on streets.

Missouri has laws covering golf carts but O’Fallon, Mo. is in the process of clarifying what is and is not allowed.

“We have state law that governs municipalities that don’t have laws, that’s what our laws currently are too, we just go with the state law,” said Tom Drabelle with the City of O’Fallon. “But recognizing these are getting bigger, becoming more popular, we just want to make sure our laws really define exactly what the laws are here in O’Fallon.”
