Strict Guidelines for Golf Cart Owners

Golf cart operators are expected to adhere to certain rules and regulations, not much different from that of someone who operates an automobile. While certain rules differ from one municipality to the next, here’s a look at some basic guidelines golf cart drivers can follow.

While a license is not needed to operate golf carts, states have minimum age requirements. Most states require a driver to be at least 14 years of age and a handful of others have set that minimum age at 13.

Operators should also watch how much alcohol they drink before driving. In most states, operators can be arrested for a DUI. There have been numerous incidents all over the country in which drivers have been arrested for a DUI and suffered the same consequences as regular motorists. Simply because a golf cart functions at lower speeds does not mean drivers are exempt from obeying motor vehicle laws.

Basic rules should also be followed, such as no standing while the cart is in motion and keeping all riders’ arms and legs inside the cart while it is in motion. Failing to obey traffic signs can also lead to the issuing of a ticket. Golf cart operators in many states receive tickets for not stopping at a stop sign and some can even be penalized for not having the proper registration.

It is also important to note that most communities do not permit golf cart travel on its sidewalks. And when it comes to intersection crossings, golf cart drivers are expected to yield to motor vehicles as they have the right of way.

The bottom line is that golf cart owners have a responsibility to familiarize themselves with the rules of the road in their particular municipality. A failure to do so could lead to more than a warning, but costly fees and penalties as operators are not immune to moving violations.

Carolina Golf Cars has something for everyone including a huge selection of street legal golf carts. No matter where you are located, Carolina Golf Cars can provide you with the golf cart you have always wanted.
