when my 2 oldest daughters were younger, I would take them all over town with the Cub Cadet 70 and # 3 IH wagon. got a ton of smiles from people , who would wave as we went by and my daughters would also wave as if they were in a parade. Good Times......

In Michigan a GT is considered a MV and you must have a valid DL to operate on a couty, twp, or city road / street. If you have a Suspended, Revoked or Restricted DL you may not operate any motor vehicle on a roadway. Now that also includes ATV, ORV, Snowmobile and any watercraft. Around here where we live there isn't to much to worry about unless you are known to have bad license etc.. I've seen a lot of people driving their GTs to the gas station and store. Roger.

The only time I've gotten in trouble for driving a lawn mower on the street was many years back when I lived in town. One summer a couple of buddies and I decided to build some fast lawn mowers (it was PBS's fault they did a show about lawn mower racing). The cop seen us flying around town one time and clocked us going a little over 30 mph. He basically chewed us out for going over 30 in town and told us to slow it down, then walked back to the car shaking his head. It's a good thing they started breaking all the time and got sick of fixing, so it was a shorted lived phase. Looking back I would've done things a little different in the safety department with them. I guess you get wiser with age.

My local authorizes,really could care less about lawn or garden tractors, they really get worked up when the retired farmers drive there side by sides and 4wheelers into town for breakfast at the local coffee shop

Not sure what the laws are in my area regarding street usage,but we have a few locals who ride their mowers from one mowing job to another and I have seen one of these guys frequent the drive thru lane at a local liquor store!

An older, 1/2 blind guy rides his mower to the post office and to the local convenience store.
He has a town sticker on his mower like the guys that use their golf carts, but I don't know if the town cop made him or he just did it.
I ride mine to the gas station and around town when I am snow plowing. I have driven around on town streets pulling young-un around.
Think I will check with the local and county law to see what is legal....not that it makes me any difference..........
