I use my seat belt so the cart will hit the ground first, I may also hit the ground but the golf cart won’t be coming down on top of me. I still could hit the curb with my head and die but, the odds are in my favor wearing seat belt. Odds are also I won’t roll out in to oncoming traffic and get killed by secondary accident surviving the first one.

Think about??? Was that long to get you to wear seatbelt?

YES! YES! YES!!! I have personal experience with this and only by the grace of God the injury to the passenger turned out to relatively minor after a visit to the ER. An instant of distraction can turn into a tragedy.

Good points for wearing a seat belt in golf carts found in this Nov. 2018 article from Inside the Bubble ->Dropbox - A-Case-for-Golf-Cart-Seat-Belts-in-The-Villages-Inside-The-Bubble (1).pdf

Like everything else in life, you play the odds. While wearing a seatbelt will not guarantee your safety, having one on will increase your odds of not getting seriously hurt (or worse). People buy lottery tickets with far worse odds.

I have been riding around in a golf cart eleven plus years. Sumter Landing was just filling up and the Village of Caroline was selling like “hot cakes”. My point: The last few years I find myself driving my car more and my golf cart less. It’s safer. Like the commercial says - - “I know a thing or two cause I’ve seen a thing or two”.

That said, we both still enjoy our golf carts and play golf two or three times a week. Golfwingnut’s Post (#7) explains a lot why seat belts are not mandatory. Great post.
