Only individuals named on the policy may operate the cart. If the policy covers any/all drivers, it must be clearly stated on the certificate, which must also show the expiration date. A copy of your insurance card must be in your cart at all times.
The 5 mile per hour speed limit applies to carts as well as cars. Even a "slow" cart averages over 10 MPH on level ground. Going full speed at any time is considered speeding.
Lights must be used from sunset to sunrise. If your lights stop functioning at night, push the cart off the road in a safe place, remove the key and retrieve your cart after sunrise.

Handheld lights such as flashlights or spotlights are not suitable substitutes for your cart's lights and are therefore not allowed.
Carts must yield right of way to cars at intersections.
No passing for any reason at any time. This includes other carts, cars, RV's, the wagon ride, etc. If the road is blocked for any reason, do not drive off the road to pass the obstruction. Wait until the road is clear or turn around and take another road to your destination. This goes for automobiles as well as golf carts and is especially important when the ground is wet.
