Greenwood Targeting Underage Atv & Golf Cart Drivers

Chicot Memorial

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — The City of Greenwood, and the Greenwood Police Department will be monitoring your summer fun over the next few months. In order to keep people, and the streets and roadways they use safe, residents will see stepped up enforcement of laws governing the use of ATV’s and golf carts. Mayor Carolyn McAdams says they receive complaints every summer from residents dealing with children as young as 10 years old riding the contraptions across busy streets. Greenwood’s Police Chief says like any other vehicle drivers must have liability insurance, a license tag, and a driver’s license to operate on city streets. The chief says anyone caught without a license this summer will face fines, and also have their golf cart or ATV seized. In addition, the cost to recover the vehicle from police impounds starts at $250.
