Knox Mayor Reminds Residents of Golf Cart Ordinance

Knox Mayor Rick Chambers wants to remind you of the rules and regulations within the City of Knox concerning golf carts.

Mayor Chambers says golf carts are allowed on city streets only and they are not allowed on U.S. 35 or State Road 8. You may cross the highways, but you can not drive a distance on them. Golf carts are not allowed on city sidewalks or the walking trails in Wythogan Park. They may only be operated on city streets during daylight hours and a triangular, slow moving vehicle sign or a red or amber flashing light must be displayed at all times.

You must possess a valid Driver’s License to operate a golf cart and when asked, you must provide a minimum amount of insurance. Violators of the city’s ordinance can be subject to a fine of up to $500.
