Low-speed vehicle rules under review

By Michael Williamson 

A new bill being written at the state level could change rules regarding under-speed vehicles for residents.

Union County Sheriff Jamie Patton said the bill would not focus on golf carts rather specify requirements for other low-speed, utility and all-terrain vehicles.

The Sheriff’s Office can easily enforce laws around golf carts but Patton said the current bill language around other low-speed vehicles isn’t as clear enough. Input from the Buckeye Sheriff’s Association, of which Patton is president, is helping Ohio legislators revise that language.
