Golf Cart Rentals Miramar Beach, Fl Rules

As you may have noticed there are a ton of Golf Carts along Scenic Gulf drive in Miramar Beach where our vacation rentals are located.  Similar to regular vehicles there are several rules associated with the privilege of guest being able to rent and drive a street legal golf cart along scenic gulf drive please consult Florida DMV and the company you rent from for the most up to date information on these rules. 

People really enjoy driving the length of scenic gulf drive in low speed vehicle or golf cart rentals. A favorite pasttime for the golf cart group is driving to Pompano Joes or crossing over 98 to go to the Destin Commons for shopping, dinner or a movie.

As of this post, Florida Law currently states: “A low-speed vehicle or mini truck may be operated only on streets where the posted speed limit is 35 miles per hour or less. This does not prohibit a low-speed vehicle or mini truck from crossing a road or street at an intersection where the road or street has a posted speed limit of more than 35 miles per hour.”
