RICHMOND – Golf carts aren’t just for carrying golfers and their clubs down fairways. In towns such as Colonial Beach, the vehicles carry residents and tourists down public roadways as well.

Under two bills making their way through the General Assembly, more golf carts soon could be tooling along public roads in Virginia.
