Yeah, but the beer there has 1/2 the alcohol content. I'll stay where I'm at thanks

True and would be a HUGE problem if my next door neighbor wasn't newly addicted to carts and my couple lifted ones and happens to be a Marine recruiter that once a week has to go on base where beer is full alcohol. He pays for beer I provide the carts, tunes and fix all his quad and motorbike. So I'm good. And any local liquor store sells the good stuff for the same price as gas stations. And Utah has a very large amount of micro breweries where you can get REALLY good stuff.

Found this on the DMV website (Cali)

Golf Carts (CVC 345)

A golf cart is a motor vehicle designed to:

Carry no more than two persons, including the driver.
Carry golf equipment.
Have not less than three wheels in contact with the ground.
Operate at a maximum speed of 15 mph.
Weigh no more than 1,300 pounds unladen (empty).
Operation of Golf Carts (CVC 345, 21115, 21115.1 and 21716 )
Registration is not required if you operate your golf cart on a highway designated for such use by ordinance or resolution within one mile of a golf course.*
You may not operate on roads with speed zones above 25 mph except by ordinance or resolution by a local authority.

Modified Golf Carts

A golf cart cannot be converted for registration purpose as a NEV/LSV.* If you modify your golf cart to go faster than 15 mph or seat more than two persons, the vehicle is considered a regular motor vehicle and must comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) for regular passenger vehicles. These standards include additional vehicle equipment, appropriate FMVSS labels, applicable emission standards, and a 17-digit conforming VIN. Failure to comply with all necessary regulations may result in a citation.

Equipment Requirements for On-Road Use (CVC 24001.5)*

Your golf cart must comply with certain equipment standards established by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) to be registered for on-road use. The equipment requirements are outlined in form CHP 888, Motorcycle, Motor Driven Cycle, and Motorized Bicycle Requirements, which is available from your local CHP office or calling (916) 445-1865.

If you driver your golf cart on the road it must be equipped with:*

At least one headlamp, tail lamp, and stop lamp
A rear reflector
Front/rear turn signals
Front/side reflectors
A mirror (located in a position to allow the driver a rear view of at least 200 feet)
A horn
Safety glazed windshield
Windshield wipers
