Golf Carts Approved For Street Travel In Hillyard

It's official,  residents in Hillyard soon will have a new way to get around the neighborhood.
The Spokane City Council last night approved a new zone where electric golf carts can drive on streets with speed limits that are 25 mph or slower. Cart drivers must be at least 16 years old, have special insurance for their cart and will have to register with the city and pay an annual $50 fee.

The Spokesman-Review has more.
