Attorney Allen Brotherton Discusses DWIs on Golf Carts in North Carolina
By the DWI Criminal Defense Attorneys at Knox Law Center in Charlotte & Lake Norman
The short answer is yes. If you are in a location that you’d be able to get one in a car which is if you’re on the public street or highway or if you’re at a public vehicular area, then golf cart is a motor vehicle just like a car.
If you’re on a golf course and drinking, then it’s slightly different.
Yes, you’re not in a public vehicular area. However, this is something that I’m guilty of, and a lot of people are too. By driving the golf cart while impaired in the parking lot of the golf course, you could be charged with DWI.
Be safe, and make sure that when you get into that public area, let the carboy take over from that point forward.
