Golf Carts in Chesapeake Beach
Golf carts are illegal on public roads except in five specific neighborhoods within Virginia Beach. The city references Chesapeake Beach as two neighborhoods: the West Side (Chubb Lake, west of Pleasure House Road) and the East Side of Chesapeake Beach (Chesapeake Bay, east of Northampton Blvd). The other three neighborhoods are Heron Ridge Estates, Lago-Mar and Ashville Park.
Golf carts that are not registered through the DMV are not allowed to be driven on Pleasure House Road or Lookout Road. Citations are often given to golf cart drivers on these streets.
Golf carts driven between sunset and sunrise should be equip with proper headlights and break lights.
Golf carts are held to the same parking standards as cars; do not park on sidewalks and pay attention to NO PARKING signs as they apply to golf carts and citations are often given to golf carts parked in areas that do not allow vehicle parking.
