Mendota considers giving green light to golf carts and ATVs

Posted by wlpo on September 8, 2010

Would you like to share the roads with golf carts and ATVs?  It’s a possibility in Mendota.

Alderman Del Knowlton brought up the idea during a committee meeting Tuesday night and Mayor David Boelk says he’s had people ask about it.

Mendota Police Chief Tom Smith says the carts and ATVs would be subject to the same traffic laws as cars and trucks and could only be driven by licensed drivers.

The golf carts and ATVs would be limited to side streets and, if approved later, they would have to have a city sticker which would require a fee.

City officials plan to talk about it more before any changes are made.
