Children Driving Golf Carts in Evergreen

The Evergreen POA Board of Directors has had a number of recent complaints about young children driving golf carts in the community without adult supervision.  Some of the driving behaviors noted have been reckless and dangerous to both the occupants of the golf cart and to residents.  Yesterday, an accident involving an underage driver was reported to a Board member, who contacted the parents of the driver.  Thankfully, none of the children involved was injured.

 

Incidents of young children driving golf carts have been observed on both the community roads and on private property (swales between the homes).  No golf carts, regardless of the age of the driver, should be driving on other residents’ private property at any time.  Please click HERE to view the community Rules and Regulations and take note of #10 under Use Restrictions, which states that drivers of golf carts within the Evergreen community must be 16 years of age.

 

The Board requests parents who own golf carts to have a discussion with their children to ensure they are aware that 16 is the minimum age to operate a golf cart in Evergreen. Children need to understand that a tragic accident could happen as a result of the behaviors that have been recently observed.  Please stay vigilant and keep our community safe for everyone.

 

Thank you.
