Golf carts must meet certain deadlines to drive on residential streets including having a horn, headlights, blinkers and break lights.

Carts must also have seat belt.

While the launch will be a trial period, businesses are already looking to benefit from the new mode of transportation.

"Everybody wants to hop on a golf cart, drive down to their boat or their friend's house," said Matthew Bowron of Point Place Power Sports. "Rims, tires, radios, lights: it's endless with what you want to do with your cart."

Drivers must have a valid drivers license to operate a cart and use is restricted to roads labeled 35 mph or less.
