Woodstock to start registering street-legal PTVs

Woodstock residents who wish to take advantage of a new city ordinance allowing personal transportation vehicles and modified golf carts on public streets will need to register their vehicles after the turn of the New Year.

The ordinance allows PTVs on public rights-of-way with posted speed limits of 25 mph or less. It takes effect, and enforcement will begin, on March 1. Failure to register will be punishable by a fine of up to $1,000. Vehicles operated only on private property will be exempt.

A registration application, schedule of fees and instructions will be available after Dec. 15 on the Woodstock city website, http://www.woodstockga.gov/

Registration hours will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the Development Services Offices on the first floor, Woodstock City Annex, 12453 Highway 92. Owners will be asked the make, model, color and serial number of the vehicle, and should bring a photo of the PTV and insurance documentation.
