Delaware State Police say more people are illegally using golf carts and motor scooters on public roads in the Long Neck area.

"There has been an increase in the illegal use of these type of vehicles which may cause hazardous and safety issues," said Sgt. Richard Bratz of the Delaware State Police.

Bratz said police have also received reports of motorcycle racing between Massey's Landing and Malone's Bayside Marina. Other reports have mentioned impaired drivers in the Long Neck Road, Bay Road and Massey's Landing areas, he said.

Some golf carts are registered as motor vehicles, and they are equipped with headlights, tail-lights and seatbelts. Those that are not registered, however, face penalties that include $100 for the first offense and $400 and impoundment of the vehicle after the second offense.

Anyone who has witnessed or may have any information in reference to these incidents is asked to contact the Sussex Emergency Operations Center by calling 855-2980 or 911 for emergencies.
