As the golf capital of the world, some say it would only make sense for commissioners to pass a new law allowing golf carts to drive on the streets of Augusta.
it could be very beneficial to small businesses that need to get around; police
force, stuff like that," Ham said. He's the manager of Time Transportation.
The new law lets county and city leaders decide if drivers can operate golf carts on public streets. The carts have to be registered with the Georgia DMV and be installed with a braking system, tail lights, a horn, headlights, seatbelts and a windshield.

can help people get more of an understanding of what's going on in this market,
and how you can use this car for your benefit," Ham said.
