Some towns are allowing golf carts on public streets, but not Owensboro and Daviess County.

Sheriff Keith Cain says his office is getting lots of complaints about golf carts, especially in neighborhoods. He says in the past they have tried to enforce the ordinance with verbal or written warnings.

Deputies have now been instructed to start issuing citations.

Cain says the ordinance was put into place for everyone's safety and he would sure appreciate everyone's compliance.
