This is absolutely wrong. You can get a ticket in your own driveway behind a locked gate. It doesn't matter if you are on private property, any time you drive in a reckless or dangerous manner you are subject to a ticket or arrest. A cop can write you a ticket anytime and anywhere he witnesses you performing a moving violation. There are some types of offenses such as trespass for which your theory holds true, but you are asking for trouble to proceed under the assumption that you are immune from prosecution for a moving violation as long as you are on private property.
The best rule of thumb is, don't do anything illegal and you won't get caught. And if you feel you have to do something stupid, get away from other traffic (especially cops) and goof off somewhere you are less likely to be observed.
