Enjoy Watching Dummies Get Knocked Around In This Clip of Golf Cart Crash Tests (Video)

Golf cart crash test

I guess I’ll file this under “Golf,” because, eh, close enough.

If you’re one of those who thought that golf carts were stupid little electric vehicles that have no impact in the world, let alone require safety testing, welcome to the club. However, it turns out that golf carts need to be crash tested, lest one takes a header off the little stone bridge by the 15th, and the driver suffers something worse than a spilled Michelob.

Here’s a video of these flimsy little cars being put through the ringer:

I’m not saying that the video is more entertaining if you imagine Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh behind the wheel of these death carts (yes I am), but you might want to give it a shot.

The conductors of the test prove themselves to be absolutely merciless around the 0:33 mark. I mean, the guy has already lost his hair and both arms below the elbow. Do you really need to t-bone him like that?

I’m guessing that this exercise was funded 100% by the Occupy Wall Street movement.
