South Dakota State Fair Restricts Use of Golf Carts
HURON - South Dakota officials will restrict the use of golf carts on the state fairgrounds to improve safety during this year's State Fair.
State Fair manager Jerome Hertel says an average of 30,000 people a day attend the fair in Huron. He says the use of golf carts must be restricted to reduce accidents between carts and pedestrians.
Personal golf carts will no longer be allowed on the fairgrounds, but carts will be available for rent if people first get permits and show proof of personal liability insurance. Cart permits issued for transporting disabled people must be used only for carrying disabled people.
In addition, more courtesy carts and drivers will be available, and the State Fair is adding more trams.
This year's fair will be held Aug. 29-Sept. 2.
