New golf cart rules go into effect

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Starting Tuesday, September 1, new state law is forcing TxDOT to stop registering and titling golf carts.

However, don't worry you will still be able to drive the vehicles on public roads as long as you follow state laws regarding the carts.

Make sure you have a slow-moving vehicle emblem on your golf cart. Also, cities can now regulate golf cart use in their communities.
