Request for a road or street to gain golf cart designation so golf carts may legally travel on them

A golf cart may be operated only upon a road that has been designated for use by golf carts. If requested, Hillsborough County Public Works must first determine that golf carts may safely travel on or cross the public road or street.

Things to consider before requesting

  • Roads must have a posted speed of 30 mph or less
  • Sidewalk paths must be at least 8 feet wide
  • A safety analysis will be conducted to ensure that golf carts can safely share the roads/paths requested
    • Safety analysis will evaluate: Speed, traffic volumes, sight distance, road characteristics, and the types of motor vehicles using the road
  • Connectivity to existing golf cart paths and/or networks
  • Golf Cart designation service requests must come from the community bounded Homeowner Association (HOA), Community Development District (CDD), or Community Civic Association
  • Public involvement will be required if the requested golf cart designation extends outside of the HOA's boundaries
