Drunk driving! Is a golf cart considered a vehicle?

Not your typical golf   cart, but definitely a vehicle!Out of Nebraska comes tragic news of Kim McIllece, a woman who is accused of driving a golf cart while drunk. When McIllece couldn’t avoid a culvert, the cart flipped over and killed a passenger, her friend Debi Deines.

Her lawyer argues that Nebraska DUI and drunk driving laws shouldn’t apply to McIllece because a golf cart is not a vehicle..

In North Carolina, a vehicle is defined broadly, and can obviously include cars, trucks, vans, but can also include mopeds, tractors, ATVs, golf carts, and even electric wheelchairs. People riding bicycles on public roads have even been convicted of drunk driving even though a bicycle doesn’t have an engine.
