Mayor: City will research golf carts issue

BROOKHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - Brookhaven officials may consider

allowing residents to take their golf carts out for a spin on

residential streets.

Mayor Bob Massengill said city officials will study ordinances

on golf carts elsewhere in the state.

Alderwoman Shirley Estes said some people had spoken to her

about driving carts in residential areas, where they're being

ticketed for having the vehicles on the road.

Alderman D.W. Maxwell said he believes some other cities allows

golf carts on residential streets as long as they are properly

equipped with blinkers and are operated by licensed drivers.
