NEW HAVEN, Ind. (AP): The plug has been pulled on a proposal aimed at legalizing and regulating the use of golf carts on the streets of a Fort Wayne suburb.
The New Haven City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to kill the proposed ordinance after several contentious meetings on the issue.
Councilman Ron Steinman called the decision a sad one. He says golf carts will still be driven on city streets, but they will be unlicensed and without age limits, lights or safety standards.
Councilman Terry Werling says he proposed the golf cart ordinance because many elderly residents like to drive the carts around their neighborhoods and to attend events.
