Every year, different cities have corresponding rainy seasons. Although romantic and beautiful, driving a golf buggy can be a bit more difficult. Although it is difficult to drive with too much rain, you can drive safely by mastering the following driving methods and avoid rainy season risks.

Do not drive with heavy water

Do not drive blindly in places with heavy water and potholes. Even if you rely on years of driving experience, do not travel easily, because you cannot actually understand the depth of the potholes. If you drive blindly, it is easy to roll over and cause damage to the fuselage. Although the golf buggy does not have an engine, however, the battery unit also has a maximum wading depth limit. If this limit is exceeded, the golf buggy is likely to enter water and damage some important parts.

If you feel that the road is not suitable for driving, don’t be blindly confident. Traveling in the rainy season requires in-depth consideration. After years of development, golf buggy are now made of lightweight bodies. This is not a good for drivers. Many people are accustomed to driving. No, the frequent sudden braking is also a test for the strength of the body of the golf buggy, but everyone should not worry too much. The advancement of science and technology has already made up for this shortcoming.

Don’t charge on rainy days

Do not charge the golf buggy when it is raining. If the battery gets into the water, it is difficult to deal with it. If water enters the battery during driving, it should be wiped dry in time, and can be charged after drying. Charging in rain will bring greater safety hazards, because the surface of the cart body will be wet and the possibility of leakage will increase, so we are better to be cautious and never put ourselves in danger because of some negligence.
