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.

 The Temple Terrace Police Department and U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) are teaming up to prevent pill abuse and theft by giving residents a way to rid their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. 


Area residents can take their unwanted or unneeded prescription drugs to the Temple Terrace Police Department, 11250 N. 56th St., on Saturday, April 28, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for disposal. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

During the third National Take-Back Day last October, Americans turned in 377,080 pounds —188.5 tons — of prescription drugs at more than 5,300 sites operated by the DEA and nearly 4,000 state and local law-enforcement partners. In its three previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners took in almost one million pounds — nearly 500 tons — of pills.

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse, officials say. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the United States are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines, such as flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash, both pose potential safety and health hazards.

Due to volume limitations, the National Take-Back Day initiative is limited to residential medication disposal only. Businesses and other commercial entities needing to dispose of medications are encouraged to contact a licensed vendor capable of providing commercial disposal services. No needles or sharps will be accepted. For more information about this event, please contact Temple Terrace Police Officer Karen Walter at (813) 506-6551 or kwalter@templeterrace.com.
