Golf Cart Registration
The safe operation and use of golf carts in Sandcrest is the responsibility of each homeowner. The use of golf carts on city streets in Kansas (and in Sandcrest) is not technically legal unless the particular vehicle has been determined to be STREET LEGAL. Law enforcement in our area has chosen to concentrate on other crime and more serious violations so that has afforded us the opportunity to safely operate golf carts in our community. Unsafe operation, operation by obviously unlicensed minors or complaints from residents will result in everyone losing this tenuous privilege. Your neighbors are asking everyone to use common sense when operating a golf cart. Parents need to strongly educate their children (both licensed and unlicensed) about the safety and use of operating a golf cart in our community. It is not the responsibility of the HOA to monitor or police the use of golf carts but please understand if you or your child abuses this privilege or someone complains too loudly, it could result in the loss of this benefit for the entire community and could then become a source of discourse, unhappiness and inconvenience for everyone.
