The Slidell City Council recently passed a golf cart ordinance allowing golf carts to travel on City of Slidell streets with a posted speed limit of 25 mph or less. This ordinance goes into affect on Thursday, June 15, 2023.

“Cities around the country have passed ordinances allowing their citizens to travel around their communities on golf carts, and I’m excited that Slidell is now one of these cities,” said Slidell Mayor Greg Cromer. “This will only add to the charm of Slidell and I’m excited about this opportunity for our community. Please be safe and make sure to follow all the rules.”

Citizens are encouraged to read the golf cart ordinance (Code of Ordinances, Chapter 27, Article V, Ordinance No. 4117), which includes regulations for driving a golf cart on city streets. It can be viewed on the City of Slidell’s website.
