Can I get a DUI on a golf cart in Georgia?

The reasoning is that under Georgia's laws, a golf cart is both a vehicle and a motor vehicle, and Georgia DUI law applies to "any moving vehicle". Additionally, Georgia's DUI law applies to all roads, public and private. So, yes, it's possible to get a DUI on private property.
