Golf carts are not allowed on Kings Highway!

By state law, golf carts cannot drive on primary roads, including Kings Highway and US 501. They also aren’t allowed on roads where the speed limit is greater than 35 miles per hour. The State of South Carolina says you have to be a licensed driver to operate a golf cart on the public street. You cannot drive after dark nor more than four miles from the golf cart’s registered address. Golf carts must be registered with the SC DMV and must have insurance. Golf carts aren’t allowed in designated bicycle lanes, either. Just as you can’t drive or park in a bicycle lane, you cannot legally drive a golf cart in a bicycle lane.
