In A Hazard

Posted on

Golf Cart CrashSean Gregory of Time Magazine wrote a mini-article in June 30, 2008 issue about golf cart safety.   He reduces the “safety” of golf carts to numbers.  In 1990 there were 5,772 trips to the emergency room because of golf cart related injuries.  In 2006 that number rocketed to 13,411.  Common injuries are concussions, fractures and hemorrhages.  Golf cart injuries are just documented on Johnny Knoxville’s Jackass anymore.  Because of the rise of retirement communities and suburban cul-de-sacs these carts are used now more than ever.  Most are battery powered so they cost less than driving your car to the grocery store.
Wisconsin has a proud history of excellent golf.  Be careful out there, especially if your riding your cart on a course that I frequent!
