You definitely don't want to drive one of these on the street...or into a wall.
Golf carts are great for getting around golf courses and gated communities but they probably shouldn’t be driven on the street. Just look at them. They don’t offer much in the way of safety features and get destroyed during crashes. How do we know they get blown up upon impact? Because the Euro NCAP, the continent’s version of America’s NHTSA, did a crash test of one. The results are pretty damn hilarious, with a variety of 50 kph (31 mph) crashes tossing around the unfortunate dummy sitting in the driver’s seat.
It’s unlikely a golf cart will ever run into a wall going 31 mph but it’s not the craziest thing to think that a car doing the same speed could slam into the side of one on the street. In that scenario bent clubs take a back seat to broken bones. It’s a serious issue for sure, but damn it all, we can’t stop laughing at this video.
