Golf carts are a great way to get around a large campus or residential area, and they can be used to help with maintenance tasks. But even though they're much smaller and not as fast or as dangerous as a car, accidents and crashes can still happen if drivers are negligent. That's why it's important to understand the safety training that comes with a golf cart rental. At Rutgers University golf course, players who need additional help using the cart due to a disability can use the single-use Swift Mobility Cart.

This card will provide access to an individual player for as long as needed during the season. When providing enhanced access privileges to the golf cart, the following policies and procedures apply:
- Carry only as many passengers in your golf cart as there are seatbelts available so that everyone is safe.
- Be aware of obstacles and people who stand in your way, especially when you're driving a golf cart on a campus or indoors.
