Cellphone rules apply to golf carts

In an effort to reduce accidents related to distracted driving, Peachtree City is reminding golf cart drivers that the same rules regarding cellphone use apply to carts as well as cars. No one under age 18 may use wireless devices to send or receive calls or messages while operating a cart. No one of any age may read, write or send text messages while driving. Violations, including fines, can impact driver’s licenses. The city also requires golf cart drivers to give audible warning signals to pedestrians and cyclists who also use the paths.
