        A RESOLUTION urging the legislative council to establish an interim study committee to study the use of golf carts on town or city streets.
    

    Whereas, Cities and towns are seeing an increase in the use of golf carts on their streets;

    Whereas, The use of golf carts on the streets of cities and towns has become more widespread due to soaring gas prices and the increased cost of living;

    Whereas, However, these vehicles are currently not being registered for street use by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles unless they have certain safety features, including a horn, headlights and taillights, turn signals, windshields, and seat belts; and



    Whereas, With the increased use of golf carts throughout Indiana, it behooves Indiana to determine if changes need to be made to state law regarding their use: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives of the

General Assembly of the State of Indiana:


    SECTION 1. That the legislative council is urged to establish an interim study committee to study the use of golf carts on town or city streets during daylight hours.
