Only golf cars and motorized scooters are allowed on the exhibit field at the Farm Progress Show. No vehicles that will idle unattended — lawn mowers, Gators, ATVs or other utility vehicles — will be permitted.

• Visitors can rent a golf car from the Farm Progress Show approved vendor. The rental fee includes the permit required to enter the grounds.

• Visitors who bring personal golf carts will be required to purchase a permit from the golf car vendor located next to the west entrance and next to the southwest entrance.

• Golf cars may not exceed a speed of 5 miles per hour.

• Golf cars may not be used to enter an exhibit. They shall remain in the street without obstructing access to the exhibit space. Operators who drive into exhibits and tents will lose their permit, and the golf car will be removed.

• Operators must remove the key from the vehicle when it is vacated.

• A golf car may not transport more individuals than it has seats for.

• No pull-behind attachments to golf cars are permitted.

• Operators must be 25 years old.

• Operators shall operate the vehicle in a safe and prudent manner.

In those situations where questions arise relative to any aspect of these rules and regulations, Farm Progress Show management shall be responsible for all final decisions.
