Golf cart law enforced during Trick-or-Treat

Posted: Updated:

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Trick or Treaters are hitting the neighborhoods in their best costumes look to snag the best candy, but driving around with their parents in a golf cart is a big no, no at night.

Horry County police are enforcing South Carolina's golf cart law. Which states golf carts can't be operated when the sun goes down.

Mark Kruea is a spokesperson for Myrtle Beach he explains the law being enforced, "the state regulates how you drive a golf cart on a public street you need a permit from the motor vehicles you need insurance these days. You can now go four miles instead two of your home or business. That's a plus, but you still can't drive at night."

Driving at night is something at least Rania Sigmon, a Surfside resident, disagrees with when it comes to Halloween," Most of them are just going to go to their family. So I think it would be okay for them to be out as long as they've got head lights on."

Also according to the golf cart law drivers must have license and registration on their person while operating a cart and no driver under the age of 16 can get behind the wheel.

"If you can't let your 14 or 15 year old drive the younger kids around the neighborhood. That will be a problem if you do that," states Kruea.

Horry County Police will be out Halloween night enforcing the law.
