Low Speed Vehicle Ordinance Passed in Britt

The Britt City Council passed a low speed vehicle ordinance that allows any low speed or utility type vehicle to operated on any city street as long as the operator has a driver’s license and obeys all traffic laws. the vehicle must have approved working lights and other safety features.

The ordinance also covers motorized carts, motorized scooters, and electric scooters. That portion is a little more restrictive on the operation of the vehicle. Essentially they can not be operated on Main Avenue in Britt, one of the busiest streets in town. The low speed vehicles are subject to inspections by police in order that they can be operated at night. They also have to be registered with the Britt police and the cost to do so is $25.
