Georgia Motorized Carts can be Driven on Georgia Streets (O.C.G.A. § 40-6-330)

Legal Commentary. Motorized carts, including golf carts, in Georgia may be driven on Georgia streets. However, to be driven in the evening hours, the carts must comply with equipment regulations promulgated by the commissioner of the Department of Public Safety. It does not appear that the Department of Public Safety has adopted any such standard, based on a perusal of their website. However, this may be incorrect. At the very least, individuals should operate such carts at night only with sufficient lighting.
