In communities like The Villages, Florida visitors and residents are allowed to own and operate golf carts on designated pathways and certain roadways. It has been noted that over 80,000 residents occupy the Tri-County Villages area. These residents will drive their golf carts over what has been estimated over 90 miles of golf cart pathways. Due to large and fast-growing communities in Florida, many people use golf carts as a secondary or even primary mode of transportation. With the influx of golf carts on pathways and streets, more injuries between pedestrians, carts and automobiles are being seen, which can unfortunately cause serious injuries.
Types of Golf Cart Accidents:
- Single-Cart Mishaps
- Multiple Golf Cart Pile-Ups
- Golf Cart and Automobile Collisions
- Golf Cart and Pedestrian Rollovers in Parking Lots, Crosswalks or Intersections
Many golf cart accidents occur because of negligent or reckless driving, drunk driving or even underage driving. Most Florida golf carts are outfitted with headlights, turn signals and are not to be driven over speeds of 20 mph. Operating a golf cart requires a high level of care and focus, and if not driven with caution major injuries can occur, including:
- Brain and Spinal Cord Trauma

- Broken Bones
- Face, Neck or Back Injuries
