What’s the status of golf carts on Grand Isle? Not just the beach.
I googled and see that one can obtain a permit to use a golf cart or SxS on the beach in Grand Isle, but what about the roads?

It’s been a 2 or 3 years since I’ve been down there.

Don't know the legal writing on the roads, but we do it and everyone else with carts or sxs do it as well.

They can technically ticket you for it, but as long as you pull on the shoulder as much as possible to keep traffic from building up they usually leave you alone. I heard (3rd/4th hand) that they were going to use the money from the permits to build a wider shoulder, but who knows.

i was there 2 weeks ago with my sxs.

You need to stop at police station $75 for a permit that will be good until 12/31/21. Its a purple sticker that needs be displayed on the SxS or golfcart. In the office they give you the rules.
From what I understand.
Drive with traffic, obey driving laws, if there is a shoulder drive on that, if no shoulder you can drive on highway, you can drive on beach.

Police are out watching.
From what I seen don't be a dumbass and you will be good.

Max speed limit on beach is 10mph. They also drive up and down the beach with radar

You cannot drive on the road!!! People do it but they will ticket you. The thing is there are only a few cops and hundreds of carts so people get away with driving on the road so others think it is legal to do so.

Also, you have to be a certain distance from the water, pedestrians (bikes and cars) ALWAYS have right of way when you are on the cart and please don't let your non driving age kids out on them, that is also against the rule.

The truth is, you can probably get away with doing whatever you want to on a golf cart on the island because there virtually isn't any enforcement, but as a society we should be able to govern ourselves, we shouldn't need a cop to tell us what to do.

Golf Cart rules from Grand Isle PD

Anybody can get one from the PD or just people who own camps? We are heading down next weekend and I am debating bringing my Ranger.

How does the GI police Dept justify that fee?

Everyone can downvote the rules, but they almost canceled permits this year because people were breaking the rules and they didn't have a way to effectively enforce it. Keep breaking the rules and their solution will be to stop allowing carts on the beach again.

Not positive, but I am guessing it goes to the police that patrol the beach, tractor that cleans the beach...

Honestly, it could be double and still be worth it.

Just follow the rules.

Honestly 8ft wide sxs shouldn't be on side the road. The shoulder is not big enough. But it's now a big dick contest with sxs.

It's illegal to drive on road. But obviously there are parts of the island with no shoulder.

Drive on the correct side of the road. This helps with the flow

Don't let your 10yr old drive at any time.

It's gonna be packed as shite on the island. Just be careful and follow the rules. Lots of kids running around.
