Florida Golf Cart Accident Attorney / Blog / Golf Cart Accidents / HOW MANY GOLF CART CRASHES ARE THERE IN THE VILLAGES IN 2024?



According to the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office there were 54 golf car crashes in the first quarter of 2024. By comparison there were 342 car crashes in The Villages for that same time period in The Villages. SCSO also indicates they have written 1,326 traffic citations just in the first quarter of 2024, and that number is almost double the usual 700 citations issued during the first quarter by SCSO. If the numbers hold up The Villages would be on pace to exceed 200 golf cart crashes in a single year. That number of 54 golf cart crashes in one quarter may recede when the snowbirds head back north.

Here is one thing to remember about golf carts, and that is: there are golf carts (legally capable of no more than 20 mph) and then there are golf cars—which are also known as low speed vehicles, or LSVs (legally capable of no more than 25 mph).  An LSV is treated like an automobile and must have turn signals, headlights, taillights, seatbelts, etc. LSVs must also be registered with the State of Florida, have a tag, and insurance just like a car. Officers can give citations to golf carts and golf cars, including DUIs, for fault after a golf cart crash, and traffic citations.

Another aspect to recognize is the severity of injuries in a golf cart crash are many times worse than in a vehicle because golf carts do not have the protections of a car, truck or SUV. At we see many severely injured clients due to golf cart accidents.
