Georgia Motorized Cart Laws (O.C.G.A. § 40-6-330 and 331)

Practice Area photo Legal Commentary. In Georgia, a “Motorized Cart” is defined as “every motor vehicle having no less than three wheels and an unladen weight of 1,300 pounds or less and which cannot operate at more than 20 miles per hour” under O.C.G.A. § 40-1-1. As an attorney who has handled many Georgia motorcycle, golf cart moped and other accident cases, the definition is a bit confusing when compared to a golf cart or an "Electric personal assistive mobility device", defined as “a self-balancing, two nontandem wheeled device designed to transport only one person and having an electric propulsion system with average power of 750 watts (1 horsepower) and a maximum speed of less than 20 miles per hour on a paved level surface when powered solely by such propulsion system and ridden by an operator who weighs 170 pounds.”
