Golf Carts Prohibited on Roadways
The Village of North Barrington has received a number of reports from concerned residents regarding the increased occurrence of golf carts on the roadways in our community. The Village has not authorized the use of golf carts on our roadways and therefore, State law prevails, which prohibits ANY person from driving or operating a non-highway vehicle [golf cart] upon any street, highway, or roadway in the State.
The Village is particularly concerned about the quantity of reports of children riding and sometimes driving the carts. According to an article from the American Academy of Pediatrics, “Children are even more likely than adults to fall from the golf cart, and these falls are associated with higher rates of head and neck injuries and hospitalizations,” said pediatrician Gary A. Smith, M.D., Dr.P.H., FAAP, director of CIRP.
To complicate matters further, due to COVID-19 restrictions, there are more residents enjoying walks and traveling locally along our narrow and winding roadways. This increase in local activity also increases the risk of accident and injury. For the health and safety of all residents, the Village is asking for the community’s support and compliance with the law.
