With a gas tank size of 1.75 gal, suggest you buy a house next to a gas station and buy towing insurance.

Asking a qquestion like that on here will result in opinions. If that is all you want, that is OK. If you are looking for more, I suggest that you attend your district meeting.

The law is 20 mph or you need plates and insurance. That is not it can do 35 but I do not exceed 20. I truly wonder why you would ask here. Should you be stopped, a defense that a Villager told me it was ok will be worth nothing.

I don't think there is any expectation of logic. Perhaps, another symptom of covid or lock
down.

Only appropriate if you live in the woods/on a ranch or tow to a camp site.
We drive these when we go back to Colorado on daughters ranch. A hell of a lot of fun on a cattle drive.
Be smart and just get you a Yamaha gas Quiet Tech and be happy too.

Seems like every six months, someone will ask about using an UTV in TV. Just last November another poster asked the same question and it also got to 3 pages.

Is this an Accessible Golf Cart?

He wanted to use this, maybe the OP can send a private message to this poster and find out what happened.

Don't think I would want to play out of that. Speed must be limited to 20 mph (or so). Tires don't look like golf course tires. Small gas tank. My Yamaha holds six gallons. How noisy is it???

Who cares if it’s legal? You can out run the cops by cutting across the golf course. They’ll never follow you.

Hey, hey, no need! I am the original poster. I got a lot of flack about even asking the question (I mean, the nerve, right?), and for writing "accessible" rather than "acceptable". The most useful answer that I got was someone who went to the trouble of looking up the appropriate statute (imagine! Factual information which is responsive to the question at hand! Here on TOTV!), which states that if the manufacturer doesn't explicitly sell it as a golf cart, then it's not a golf cart.

This seems ambiguous to me. Could the manufacturer of either of these fine vehicles just limit the speed, replace the tires (which, as one previous poster helpfully said, the manufacturer must designate as golf cart tires), and remarket it as a golf cart, because then would be a golf cart. But then, I've long since given up on applying logic to legal matters as a fruitless battle.

A golf car would be useful in TV land to pull or push an attachment to allow for grass cutting. Thus eliminating most of the unnecessary commercial grass cutting services that park their vehicles in the middle of the road and speed through the Village roads. It could promote a good feeling to Villagers who have lost their own self-respect for their youthful "do-it-yourself" attitudes that have helped the US succeed. I am not sure if such a grass cutting attachment EVEN exists. But, if it does not exist, then, too bad, it should! And some Village entrepreneur SHOULD make it happen. Real men (and women) cut their own grass!
