Eliminating all road related fatalities, injuries, and accidents would be a phenomenal feat. Although society aims to achieve this goal, the mission has yet to be accomplished. So, to speed up the evolution of road safety, self-driving devices are being developed. These artificial intelligence systems are designed to operate machinery, detect road signs and external stimuli to avoid preventable accidents. Needless to say, the futuristic technology is rather powerful, and its potential almost boundless. A great example of this is the self-driving Club Car. Club Car Caddies As we mentioned above, Club Car has invented a self-driving golf car. However, what we failed to mention is the LSVs are not made for riding. Instead, self-driving Club Cars are currently designed to be used as a caddy. Here is how it works. Golfers place their golf bags, equipment, and drinks inside the autonomous device. Meanwhile, a golf enthusiast adds a clip to the clothes they are wearing. This removable equipment emits a unique signal the self-driving Club Car syncs up with and monitors. Out on the course, the Club Car caddie follows behind the signal source at a specific distance. In addition, a few safety measures appear to be in place. For example, to ensure...

Back in 1884, Piaggio was manufacturing railway carriages and locomotives. Since then, the company has expanded into other industries, such as luxury scooters. Of these two-wheeled devices, the Beverly scooter with a seat is arguably one of the most popular Piaggio mopeds. Given this noteworthy trend, the motorized vehicle manufacturer is celebrating the device’s 20-year history by revamping the model next year. Touring and Commuting in Style Designed for comfortable rides, the Piaggio Beverly, and the upgraded Beverly S, are considered to be highly coveted devices. Nevertheless, Piaggio has opted to evolve the moped model to reach a wider audience. To achieve this, the look and performance of the device were enhanced. Details are below. Stronger Engine When the term “liquid-cooled engine” is uttered, most people associate the phrase with high-performance automobiles or motorcycles. Despite this, Piaggio opted to include such functionality in the Beverly moped. To take advantage of this state-of-the-art technology, the following have been added to the engine. Fuel-injection

Club Cars, Ez GOs, and limo golf carts are often used on warm, sunny days. Due to this typical routine, many golf cart owners may be under the impression that low speed vehicles, or LSVs, can only be used during non-inclement weather. To find out whether or not this concept is worth abiding by, read on. Can LSVs Be Used in the Rain? Most golf carts are equipped with roofs, windshields, and even windshield wipers. However, these additions do not mean the LSV in question is capable of enduring rain, snow, or excessive winds. A common example of this is windshield wipers. Sure, these devices work in the rain and snow. However, they do not shield exposed batteries or battery compartments which can be damaged by rain or melted snow, even as the windshield wipers sway on. Therefore, take the time to analyze whether a EZ Go, Club Car, or luxury LSV can handle an inclement weather excursion prior to heading out. Be Mindful of Rain Intensity and Puddles A light drizzle, sprinkle, or mild rain is typically fine to drive in as long as extra precautions are taken beforehand. Ideal solutions include ensuring the battery compartment is sealed up tight and other internal...
When golf cart batteries start to go bad it can be hard to notice.

Shoveling snow is a great workout. However, if done incorrectly the seasonal task can be a source of numerous aches and pains. To circumvent the issue altogether, many golf cart owners resort to using low speed vehicles as snow plows. In this article, we cover how to achieve this task as well as the biggest hurdle golf cart owners face when transforming a golf cart into a snow plow. Can LSVs Handle the Job? When it comes to piling up large mounds of frozen water, two things are needed. Force, and traction. Fortunately for LSV owners, a modest 15 mph is more than enough to move loose, fluffy snow around. So, force is definitely covered. However, traction is a bit harder to come by. See, slick surfaces make it hard for EZ Go, Club Cars, and other luxury golf carts tires to grip into the ground long enough to avoid simply spinning out. Nevertheless, the aforementioned wheels can be equipped with snow chains or upgraded to better tires, if needed. Once this issue is addressed, LSV owners can utilize any of the following snow plows to handle the annual task. DIY Golf Carts The 54” universal snow plow from DIY Golf Carts is designed to...
Folf, also known as disc golf, is a sport that involves throwing frisbee like objects into targets, or holes. In case you are not familiar, the super technical hobby is similar to golf in regards to rules. For example, a round of folf is usually played on a special course consisting of 9 or 18 holes, and each target has its own specified tee location. However, unlike golf, folf requires players to carry around heavy discs of various shapes and sizes. Due to this, folf players require specially designed backpacks and high-quality disc golf carts capable of withstanding the weight. In this article, we take a look at the top disc golf carts to aid folfers with the task of finding the perfect gear to suit their needs.

Dry rot is known as the deterioration an object via a plethora of microscopic changes. Originally, the aforementioned term applied only to the fungi that affects wood. However, “dry rot” has evolved to include other substances, such as tires. In this article, we review what rubber dry rot is, and how to protect new or used golf cart tires. What Causes Rubber Dry Rot? Contrary to popular belief, dry rot can occur on golf cart tires even if the LSV is used everyday. This phenomenon typically occurs due to the following reasons. Low tire pressure
Hot, humid temperatures
UV light breaking down rubber polymer bonds
Tires come in contact with chemicals, such as industrial cleaners or motor oil
Frigid, dry weather
Oxidization That said, rubber dry rot often starts with small, hairline fractures on the surface. Since these tiny tears are hard to see, LSV owners are encouraged to check tires for the following telltale signs of deterioration. Rough, course exterior appears fragile
Tread or sidewall breaks into small pieces when touched
Golf cart tires are a lighter shade than they were at purchase If the tires on an EZ Go, luxury golf cart, Club Car, or LSV have any of the traits...
