FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE   
 
            NEW RULES WILL ALLOW GOLF CARTS ON CITY STREETS 
                                  
TEMPLE TERRACE, FL. – (6/14/12) – Temple Terrace is making it easier for people to get 
around town -- without having to drive a car. 
 
The City Council has approved the use of golf carts on city streets. Those who plan to use golf carts to travel 
around the community must register their carts with the city and meet other requirements. The city will begin 
registering golf carts on Oct. 1, 2012 for the 2013 calendar year. Under the new ordinance: 
 
* Golf carts must be registered with the city. An annual $10 processing fee will be assessed, and decals issued 
to indicate the registration is current. 
* Golf-cart drivers must possess a valid Florida driver’s license. 
* Drivers must obey all public roadway rules and regulations. 
* Golf carts must meet basic equipment requirements, such as adequate brakes, reliable steering, safe tires, etc. 
* Anyone operating a golf cart in violation of road rules will be subject to a citation from the Temple Terrace 
Police Department. 
 
The ordinance applies to city streets only. Golf carts will not be permitted on state or county roadways, such as  
56th
 Street, Fletcher Avenue or Fowler Avenue. Golf cart tunnels must be used for crossing Bullard Parkway. 
 
A brochure outlining the ordinance, requirements, registration procedures and other important information is 
available at City Hall, the Family Recreation Complex, the Temple Terrace Public Library, the Temple Terrace 
Golf & Country Club and other locations.
