Illegal operation of certain vehicles

Bartow Police Chief Joseph Hall

Statutory regulations are our way of living in a civil and safe society. They are, in part, designed to protect everyone. They are guidelines for every citizen to follow, especially when operating on the roadways. Obviously, not everyone follows the rules hence the saying, “Drive defensively.” If you violate the rules, you may find yourself being stopped by a police officer and maybe even receiving a traffic citation. Laws, or statutes as I refer to them, are also supposed to be designed so that the average citizen can understand — so we can follow the rules.

In Bartow, we routinely receive complaints about vehicles operating on the roadways that are not supposed to be there. Typically speaking, golf carts and all-terrain vehicles are not allowed by law to be operated on roadways. There are some exceptions, but they are few and far between. In Bartow, the City has authorized “governmental only” golf carts in the downtown area. This would be one exception to the rule.
