Among issues he reminded people to lock up their cars at night, and use common sense when it comes to children using golf carts in neighborhoods.
“What we are looking for is for parents to step up,” Sheriff Tucker said. “Just like any other tool, be it a lawnmower or a firearm for instance, responsibly teaching these kids how to use these tools… We don’t need to see a 6-year-old driving a golf cart. There’s no cause for that.”
Sheriff Tucker says the only people who should be driving them are those with a permit.
He says deputies plan to do regular patrols throughout neighborhoods, especially while kids are out, to help keep everyone safe.
