One other place you are beginning to see more and more of these small utility vehicles is on the street. Street legal golf carts are becoming more popular for quick transportation that is green and cost effective.

Uses of a Street Legal Utility Cart

Street legal golf or utility carts have a few different features than a recreational model. They are equipped with additional safety features like windshields, seat belts and even rear view mirrors. They also must be able to travel the speed limit of a residential area, usually about 35 MPH. Each state and municipality may have different laws on what golf carts must have to be considered street legal.

So what can you use a street legal cart for and what are the benefits? Here are a few reasons people invest in these versatile vehicles.
