Driving Golf Carts On Some Baldwin County Roads Could Become Legal

Golf Cart
It's illegal to drive standard golf carts on most roads.

SILVERHILL, AL – It’s currently illegal to operate a standard golf cart on most roads, but in Baldwin County, that could change.

Voters will be asked to approve Local Amendment 4 in the November general election. The amendment would give individual municipalities in Baldwin County the ability to control and regulate the use of golf carts on city roads.

If Local Amendment 4 is passed, golf carts would have to be equipped with specific safety features including headlights, tail lights, turn signals and windshields.

Operators would also have to have a valid driver’s license and carry liability insurance.

Golf carts would only be allowed on roads with speed limits of less than 25mph.
