Frankfort cites safety in ban of golf carts on village streets

Mar 6, 2011 Full story: 301 Moved Permanently 9

Residents can no longer take their golf carts out for a spin in the village. A new ordinance limits the use of such vehicles and of "electric personal assistive mobility devices" to the Frankfort Police Department, village personnel, the Frankfort Fire Protection District and the Will County Forest Preserve District.

Glad to see the village passed this law. I've seem kids on these last summer and something needed to be done. Golf carts are meant for a golf course.

I wish we could use them (adults, not teens). But, we have stores nearby that make it easy to get to....no major roads would be needed.

I took my son this morning and visited the station. He loves going there. I didn't see the speed boat. I asked if they have anything for water emergencies and the fireman said that they have an old little boat and water gear. Made no mention of getting or just got a new speed boat.
