Greenville City Council discusses changes to golf cart use.

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Golf cart use is booming across the Upstate and it was a hot topic at a Monday night's city council meeting in Greenville.

City police say the main issue is on Augusta Street and there's a push to make Augusta Street a primary road, meaning golf carts can't drive on it.

Greenville's city attorney says golf carts can only be driven four miles from where they are registered and on secondary roads that are 35 miles per hour or less. 

The city is debating on changing the law that would allow golf cart use only two miles from where the cart is registered. 

Other rules talked about at the meeting was the 16-year-old driving age requirement and drivers must be registered with the DMV.

Also, golf carts can not be driven after daylight.
