Golf Car Safety Tips

Whether you are playing 18 holes, cruising around your neighborhood, or driving on the job, golf cart safety should be a priority. Laws and ordinances vary by location, but we recommend always following these tips:

  1. Arms and legs should always remain in the golf cart.
  2. If your vehicle is equipped with seat belts – then use them.
  3. Do not carry more passengers than you have seats for.
  4. Be courteous and obey vehicle traffic laws.
  5. Never drive intoxicated or under the influence of drugs.
  6. Always check blind spots before turning, and use caution throughout the turn.
  7. Look behind your golf cart before backing up.
  8. Avoid excessive speed, sudden starts and stops, and sharp turns at fast speeds.
  9. Do not leave keys in an unattended golf cart.
  10. Avoid driving in bad weather. Golf carts may be prone to lightning strikes.
  11. Avoid distractions, and don’t be reckless. This means you should not text, talk on the phone, read, eat, or do anything else that takes your attention away from driving.
