Reprinted with permission from the Property Owners Association of The Villages monthly Bulletin "We have had two more golf cart related fatalities in the last month. Like all of the other fatalities the golf cart occupants WERE NOT WEARING A SEAT BELT and were thrown/ejected from the cart at impact. In the latest crash the victims were doing everything right - they were not drinking, speeding, etc., but merely using the cart as a legal means of transportation, but they were not using seat belts. Please note that there have been at least EIGHTEEN golf cart related FATALITIES in The Villages in the last eight years, and over three dozen golf cart users who had to be trauma alerted to a hospital with head injuries during the last four years. Each month, starting with the February 2012 POA Bulletin and ending in April, 2014 (you can find all of them at the poa4us.org web page - chick on "archived bulletins"), we have included a listing of all of the accidents (with as much description as we had available) that we were aware of, and identified that almost all of them involved either someone falling out of a cart, or being ejected from the cart onto the pavement. Our message is that we believe you might be safer if you use a seat belt, but the usage of seat belts in golf carts is not require by Florida Statutes so it is your choice". (NOTE - STAR CARTS COME WITH SEATBELTS)
