GREENFIELD — Dan Taylor said he was surprised when he was pulled over by a police officer last month while putt-putting at less than 25 mph in a golf cart at Meridian Road and U.S. 40.

Taylor has been tooling around on his cart like this for three years, taking leisurely drives to parks or through neighborhoods. After he picked up his grandson from Weston Elementary School, Taylor said a Greenfield police officer told him for the first time it was against the law to drive a golf cart on city streets.

“He’s just having a bad day,” Taylor told his grandson.
