NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Legality of Golf Cart Operation on the Roadway
DATE: July 15, 2022
GENERAL NARRATIVE
The Kingsport Police Department routinely receives citizen inquiries regarding the legality of operating golf carts on the roadway, and from time-to-time our Officers encounter citizens actively engaging in this very activity. There has been a great deal of misinformation and misunderstanding on this subject, and with Fun Fest and other summer activities now in full swing, some education and clarification is in order.

Tennessee state law recognizes three categories of vehicles related to this issue:

1) Traditional Golf Cart which is defined as a motor vehicle that is designed and manufactured for operation on a golf course for sporting or recreational purposes that is not capable of exceeding speeds of twenty miles per hour (20 mph)

2) Low Speed Vehicle which is defined as any four-wheeled electric vehicle (excluding traditional golf carts), whose top speed is greater than 20 miles per hour (20 mph) but not greater than twenty-five miles per hour (25 mph)

3) Medium Speed Vehicle which is defined as any four-wheeled electric or gasoline-powered vehicle (excluding traditional golf carts), whose top speed is greater than thirty miles per hour (30 mph) but not greater than thirty-five miles per hour (35 mph)

Per Tennessee state law, a vehicle meeting the above definition of a “traditional golf cart” IS NOT street legal and may not be titled and registered for on-road use, UNLESS it has been modified to meet all of the low or medium speed vehicle requirements in Tennessee state law and related federal safety standards.

A golf cart that has been designed and manufactured for on-road use, or is modified to meet all of the low or medium speed vehicle requirements and federal safety standards does not meet the above legal definition of a “traditional golf cart.” Since this vehicle is legally not a “traditional golf cart,” it may be legally registered as a low or medium speed vehicle if all necessary requirements are met.

To register a low or medium speed vehicle, designed and manufactured for on-road use, applicants should provide to their local county clerk’s office a copy of the vehicle’s MSO (manufacturer’s statement of origin), as proof that the vehicle meets all statutory requirements and safety standards, along with the traditional documentation required for vehicle registration.

Individuals modifying a traditional golf cart to meet low or medium speed vehicle requirements must submit a low or medium speed vehicle affidavit (see links below) that certifies that the vehicle has been sufficiently modified to meet the necessary legal requirements. The affidavit must be submitted with the registration application as a condition of registration.

Medium Speed Vehicle Affidavit

https://www.tn.gov/content/dam/tn/revenue/documents/forms/titlereg/f1319801Fill-in.pdf

In order to be street legal, a low or medium speed vehicle must meet the following requirements:

· Must have headlamps

· Must have headlamps

· Must have stop lamps

· Must have front and rear turn signals

· Must have tail lamps

· Must have reflex reflectors (one on each side near the rear and one on the rear)

· Must have a parking brake

· Must have one exterior mirror on the driver side and one additional mirror (either on the passenger side or in the interior)

· Must have a windshield that conforms to the federal motor vehicle safety standard on glazing materials

· Must have seat belts (type 1 or 2) located at each seating position

· Must have a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)

· Must be registered and have license plate displayed

· Must be insured with proof of insurance available

· Must be operated by a licensed driver with a valid Class D driver license in their possession

A street legal low speed vehicle may be operated on streets where the posted speed limit is thirty-five miles per hour (35 mph) or less. A street legal medium speed vehicle may be operated on streets where the posted speed limit is forty miles per hour (40 mph) or less. While low and medium speed vehicle may not be driven on streets that exceed the respective 35 and 40 mph limits, they may cross such streets, but only at intersections. Drivers of all street legal low and medium speed vehicles must obey all traffic laws and rules of the road.

Also, pursuant to City of Kingsport Municipal Ordinance, vehicles (to include traditional golf carts as well as low and medium speed vehicles) MAY NOT be operated on a sidewalk.

Finally, Tennessee D.U.I. laws apply to any motor vehicle to include traditional golf carts as well as low and medium speed vehicles.

It is important to note than anyone who chooses to ignore the above regulations concerning traditional golf carts and low and medium speed vehicles may be subject to significant criminal penalties and civil liabilities.

KPD e-News Release: K.P.D. Announces Annual “Summer of Safety” Traffic Enforcement Campaign

Kingsport Police Department

Dale Phipps, Chief of Police

200 Shelby Street • Kingsport, TN 37660

http://KingsportTN.gov/City-Services/Police-Departmentwww.KingsportPDBlog.com

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: K.P.D. Announces Annual “Summer of Safety” Traffic Enforcement Campaign
DATE: July 6, 2022
GENERAL NARRATIVE
The Kingsport Police Department is once again announcing its annual “Summer of Safety” traffic enforcement campaign. This initiative is necessitated by, and in response to, our own observations as well as numerous citizen expressed complaints and concerns regarding an increase in the more egregious traffic violations that both disturb the peace and threaten public safety.

From July 1 – September 30, 2022 all members of the Kingsport Police Department will be significantly increasing their enforcement efforts to address these violations, and focus on reducing and discouraging their occurrence, with a mission of minimizing crashes and the resultant injuries and fatalities.

Some of the violations that K.P.D. will be prioritizing include but are not necessarily limited to:

· Driving Under the Influence

· Reckless Driving

· Drag Racing

· Aggressive Driving and Road Rage

· Texting, Hands-Free Violations, and Other Forms of Distracted Driving

· Excessive Speed

· Child Restraint and Seat Belt Violations

· Safety Equipment Violations

· Excessive Noise (especially extremely loud modified exhaust systems)

· Exhaust Systems Deliberately Modified to Blow Excessive Smoke

While committing some of these violations will result in a simple (but costly) citation being issued to the offender, others could easily lead to jail confinement with expensive fines, court costs, and attorney fees. And while some may find these penalties harsh, if any one of these violations were left unchecked, the alternative could easily be a serious crash with critical injuries or lives lost.

“Our ultimate goal is simple – for the sake of the safety of our city’s motoring public, we expect compliance with the traffic laws and ordinances of the State of Tennessee and the City of Kingsport. Anything less is unsafe and unacceptable,” said Dale Phipps, Chief of Police. “We owe this to the citizens of this great city, whom we have a sworn duty to protect and serve.”

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Suspect in Custody Following Stabbing at IHOP
DATE: June 19, 2022
CASE #: 22-011402
GENERAL NARRATIVE
On June 18, 2022 at approximately 8:50 PM Kingsport Police Department Patrol Officers and Detectives responded to IHOP, located at 1201 East Stone Drive in Kingsport in reference to a stabbing incident.

Upon arrival, Officers located two adult male victims, both employees of IHOP, outside of the restaurant. Both men had sustained knife wounds and were transported to an area hospital for emergency medical treatment. While their injuries appeared severe, they were not initially believed to be life-threatening.

Further investigation revealed that the victims had been stabbed during an altercation with another individual, identified as Aaron E. Hopson, who then fled the scene before police arrived. At least one of the victims was acquainted with Mr. Hopson prior to this incident.

A warrant was obtained, charging Mr. Hopson with two counts of Attempted First Degree Murder. On June 19, 2022, at approximately 2:00 AM, Mr. Hopson was located at his residence in Sullivan County, just outside of the city limits of Kingsport. Following a brief stand-off, he was taken into custody.

Mr. Hopson was transported to the Kingsport City Jail, where as of the time of this release, he remains confined, pending arraignment.

This appears to have been an isolated incident, contained to the people involved, and is not believed to have posed a danger to the general public. At the time of this release, an update on the condition of the two victims was not available. Their names will not be released.

The associated investigation remains active and ongoing by the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division. As such, no further details can or will be shared at this time.
