ZAVALLA, TX (KTRE) -

An anonymous Zavalla resident sent in this picture into KTRE.

Shown in the photo are two city council members Pam Hooks, Sue Hough and a child not in safety belt.

The photo has been posted to various social media pages and Angelina County Sheriff Greg Sanches confirmed it is illegal.

But Hough claims she had no idea that driving a golf cart on the road was an issue, she says she was taking her granddaughter to see her daughter at work just a few minutes from her home.

But after seeing the problems it's caused she says she plans on getting the correct requirements to drive on the roadways.

" I'm going to have to get to Lufkin I didn't have time today  but I need to get to Lufkin and see if I can get the right permits take all my VIN numbers and when my son gets in I'm going to have him hook me up some blinkers," said Hough.

Hough and Hooks were not ticketed for driving the golf cart on the roadway.
