Golf carts are becoming more and more popular as a form of transportation. There was a time when the only place people would see golf carts was on a golf course or at a country club. Now we are starting to see them used in large office complexes, college campuses, construction sites and some are even street legal. It is important to drive a golf cart in a safe and responsible manner at all times. These carts can become dangerous if not used properly. They can be dangerous since most of these carts do not offer much protection to the driver and any passengers. Although these vehicles are being used for recreational purposes it is important to treat it like a real car and drive responsibly.
The most important thing to keep in mind when operating a golf cart is the safety of yourself and others. Below are a list of safety tips to keep you safe when operating a golf cart:
- Wear your seat belt. Whether you’re the driver or the passenger
- Slow down when making turns
- Honk the horn at intersections to alert pedestrians and other drivers
- Don’t be under the influences of drugs or alcohol when driving
- Avoid sidewalks
