Legally, no. All cars must have a safety belt, brake/turn signals, headlights, and airbags. They may be allowed in towns if they have brake signals, like in annapolis. They use Golf carts to transport people from hotels. However, they are limited to private roads and small city roads. Anything with high speeds or multi-lane roads is not allowed.

Whether that's legal depends on your state. In Arizona, for instance, modifying golf carts to be street legal is allowed. Here's an article on that:

Can you drive a golf cart on the highway?

No. Since golf carts do not meet regulations (or need to) to be driven on public roads, they are designed specifically for golf courses. Having said that, some golf clubs have their own rules governing the need to be a certain age or hold a current drivers license. It would pay to check with the club before using a cart on their course.

Do I need driver License for golf carts in the Wawasee In area?

Golf carts are usually driven on a golf course. As the golf course is classed as private land, if you are given permission to drive a golf cart by the owner or golf committee, then you don't need a special license. Obviously, if you insist on driving the golf cart on public road to go home, you do need a driving licence (which may be covered by your car driving licence, but not always). But insurance and third party cover maybe lacking. So, basically, drive a golf cart (with permission) and don't drive it off private land. The main thing is ask first - drive second!

Can you drive golf cars on the road?

As far as I know, a golf car is not road legal. You can contact your local DMV and ask what is needed to make your cart road legal. Some states are a simple as a slow moving vehicle sigh while others require the use of headlights, taillights, insurance etc. In most cases you will not be allowed on roads that are over 35 MPH.

Cruise the Course in Style With a Pimped Out Golf Cart?

You may do a double take when you catch sight of one of the new golf carts cruising around the many golf course communities in the United States. These are not the rental carts that you remember from the olden days, but decked out state-of-the-art carts with real pizzazz. From features added for comfort, to body designs meant to impress, innovations in golf carts have come a long way. Worried about getting caught out in the rain? Golf carts are now available with full zip up enclosures as well as a canopy to protect your clubs. For those who don’t want to go through the trouble of zipping up the sides, doors are also available for golf carts. Add a heater specially designed for golf carts, and you can enjoy cruising around in comfort, even in the winter. When money is no object, the design possibilities for both gas and electric golf carts are endless. Choose a golf cart styled to resemble the cars of yesteryear. Custom design your cart to look like a car or truck of the 1930’s, complete with either a hard top or convertible soft top. A hood ornament, pin striping, flames, and a wide selection of seat covers can make your cart distinctive. Current trends in golf carts include those designed to resemble a hummer, fire engine, jeep, Cadillac, off-road truck, and more. By the time you are finished selecting amenities such as a cooler in the trunk, custom dashboard, a back seat, and fancy wheels, your new luxury cart may cost as much as a car. Have fun pinping your cart and the response you receive from onlookers will make the investment worthwhile. Whether you are playing a round of golf, or just looking for a fun way to get around town, consider a golf cart for your second mode of transportation. Energy efficient and a blast to drive, many communities are making accommodations to incorporate golf carts.

Why can a two wheel off road motorcycle be street legal in Idaho and a 4 wheel ATV cannot be legal?

Starting in 2009, off-road vehicles - off-road motorcycles, ATVs and "utility terrain vehicles" like John Deere Gators and golf carts - were reclassified as "restricted vehicles." You can't use them on state highways, controlled-access roads, or interstate highways. You can only cross a state highway at designated points. And populated places can designate specific roads as off-limits to these vehicles...but the tradeoff is, you can use your restricted vehicle on any other road. If you want a vehicle to be fully street-legal, it needs lights, turn signals and a horn. Plenty of off-road motorcycles have them, so they can be registered as street-legal.
