No No No No on requiring seat belts. Let's leave a little freedom left for us in this country. Aren't we all regulated enough. If you like them, buy them, install them, enjoy them, but please leave me alone

we decided to install them after taking the golf cart course at the Lifelong Learning College right after we moved here; it just makes so much sense!

A BIG NO for seat belts.. There is already too much regulation here. If you want seat belts put them in but don't make it a law.

Because of the time spent and the miles covered we are supplying Villagers with comfortable seats and retractable seat belts more than ever.

There is the concern by some of being trapped in a cart being 'tied' to the chassis with seat belts and the possibility of the cart doing a complete flip.

Some cart manufactures still are reluctant to supply seat belts on there carts because of the roof supports not being able to hold up in a complete cart flip. This point is under stood but the stats show that most injuries due to crashes do not involve cart flips.

The good news is that people are making the choice now on their own to install seat belts and they use there belts securing themselves securely at 20 MPH.

Let's all be safe and secure while we enjoy life in The Villages.

Buckle Up!

Default seat belts

If you feel safer in your cart with a seat belt, then you should wear one, but don't tell me what you think I should do.

Seat belts are needed for those who drive reckless, careless or clueless. Again this looks like the beginning of the 10% dictating to the 90% who do not hit curbs or others.
