You wouldn’t think that a golf cart would need insurance, but you’ll need some form of coverage if you plan on driving one on the roads of West Hartford, CT. The state’s General Assembly passed a law in 2009 allowing golf carts on local streets where the speed limit is 25 mph or lower. All you need is to be a licensed driver and have your golf cart protected with some form of insurance coverage.
Golf carts and other low-speed vehicles (LSVs) have gained popularity in many communities and a few have even designed themselves around these vehicles. If you’ve already found recreational insurance coverage thanks to the experts at ALLConnecticut Insurance, you’re probably wondering if it can cover your golf cart.
Golf Cart Coverage Options
You can cover your golf cart with an endorsement to your homeowner’s insurance policy, but it’s only valid as long as you’re riding on your own property. Once you hit the city streets, you’ll need coverage that’ll protect you in case anything happens on the road. Unfortunately, most auto insurance policies don’t cover golf carts or other recreational vehicles, for that matter.
Recreational insurance can cover a wide variety of vehicles that normally wouldn’t be covered under your current auto or homeowner’s insurance policy, including ATVs, RV campers and yes, even your golf cart. By putting your golf cart under your recreational insurance policy, you’ll have the coverage needed to protect yourself and others in case the unexpected happens.
Some insurance providers even offer standalone golf cart insurance policies. It’s worth exploring one of these policies if you haven’t yet opted for recreational insurance.
