Dangerous Vehilces – Small Electric Cars

They are popular in retirement communities.  You may have seen them cruising around the treets of your neighborhood.  The look like electric golf carts on steroids.  The ave headlights, seatbelts, and seats but not much else.  They are cute and fun looking with top speeds up to 30 mph.  And they are very dangerous.  “Most people think they are safe simply because they are on the road,” said G. Grant Dixon III, founder of Dixon Law Office.  “The Federal government does not allow them on Federal roads but some States allow them on State roads,” he said.  The reason they are so dangerous is simple, “if you are in one of these in a crash, chances are you will be very seriously hurt or die,” Dixon said.  Federal safety regulations don’t apply to the cars because they are not permitted on Federal roads.  A video from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety shows how dangerous these vehicles really are http://youtu.be/roLcNwRi1Sk.
