In Hollywood and across Southern Florida, golf carts are becoming an increasingly common form of transportation, even off the greens. In many neighborhoods, gated communities, and retirement communities, residents are using these vehicles to get around and the number of golf carts in the region is rising.
At the same time as the number of golf carts is rising in places such as Hollywood, Homestead, Hialeah, Coral Gables, and other communities in Florida, the golf carts themselves are changing. Newer versions on the market have more features and may be able to go faster, sometimes over 25 miles per hour. Known as “super golfcarts,’ these golf carts, in particular, have been linked to a number of injuries.
