Mulit-Use Vehicles (including Golf Carts & "Side-by-Sides")

For the past several years, the Village of Fort Recovery has authorized the use of golf carts and “side-by-sides” (e.g., Rangers, Razors, Gators) on Village streets. Due to the enactment of a new Ohio law, the Village was required to change its local laws, as well as the inspection program for such vehicles.

Below is a snapshot of the Village’s new laws.

  • In addition to golf carts and side-by-sides, mini-trucks are now permitted on Village streets. The Village collectively refers to these three categories of vehicles as “Multi-Use Vehicles.”
  • Multi-Use Vehicles may be driven on Village streets where the speed limit is 35 mph or less.
  • Out-of-state Multi-Use Vehicles are no longer permitted on Village Streets.
  • Regardless of whether your Multi-Use Vehicle is newly purchased, or was previously inspected by FRPD or another law enforcement agency, your vehicle must be inspected/reinspected by FRPD.

  • You must call FRPD at (419) 375-2662 to schedule an inspection/reinspection of your Multi-Use Vehicle.
  • If your Multi-Use Vehicle passes inspection/reinspection, you will be issued an inspection sticker that must be placed on the lower right side (driver side) of the windshield.
  • ​You must operate your Multi-Use Vehicle at all times in accordance with applicable State and local traffic laws.
  • Failure to comply with the Village’s laws for Multi-Use Vehicles may result in a fine of at least $100 per day of non-compliance.
