Toledo's New Golf Cart Law


On March 7th, 2017, Toledo City Council passed a resolution permitting Golf Carts to operate in 3 designated areas of the City.

The vehicles — which must be street legal with lights, brakes, a horn, and seat belts — can be operated April 1 through Dec. 31, 2018, in Point Place, the Old West End, the Warehouse District, downtown, a stretch that runs from the Old West End to the Toledo Museum of Art, and across the Martin Luther King, Jr., Bridge to International Park in East Toledo.

In order to a golf cart drive legally in these designated areas, the following rules must be followed:

  1. Driver’s must pay $25 for a license before it could be used on city streets.
  2. Drivers must be at least 16 and hold a valid driver’s license.
  3. Driver’s must have their carts inspected and determined to be street legal by the Toledo Police. The Toledo Police have announced that they will begin inspecting Golf Carts at the Toledo Police Impound Lot located at 198 Dura Avenue beginning March 31st, 2017 during normal business hours.
