Golf Cart DUI
Arrested for a DUI in a golf cart?
Driving a golf cart under the influence of alcohol or drugs carries the same penalties as driving a motor vehicle under the influence. Yes, a golf cart DUI is subject to the same DUI laws as other vehicles on the road. Being arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs on a golf cart could result in traditional DUI penalties including fines, probation, driver’s license suspension, mandatory alcohol, education, treatment programs, self help meetings, community labor, and/or jail time. A golf cart driver could also be subject to even more severe penalties such as jail time, state prison, and/or alcohol monitoring. The sentencing terms increase in cases of injury and prior convictions.
Furthermore, additional charges could result, such as child endangerment if there is a child riding in the golf cart. A child endangerment conviction could result in additional jail time, child abuse courses, parenting courses, and higher fines. A child endangerment charge would be possible for something that seems as innocuous as taking the grandkids for a pleasure ride on the cart around the block after having a cocktail. If you have been charged with a DUI while you’re driving a golf cart, it is essential to seek legal advice from a qualified attorney with experience in this matter.
