Open Letter from Sgt. Jason Daniels

Due to severe head injuries and the dangers of riding on golf carts the Hyde County Sheriff’s Office wants to remind everyone of the current state and local laws for having children on a golf cart. Children under 8 years of age or under 80 lbs must be in an approved child restraint. A child under 40lbs must be secured in an approved car seat. A child over 40lbs must be secured with a lap belt unless a shoulder strap is present. If a shoulder strap is present the child needs to be secured in a booster seat with this strap. It is always our goal to issue warnings and not issue citations. The Sheriff’s Office will be enforcing these types of violations with no more warnings. If you have any questions please call me at 252-542-0108.
