July is Golf Cart Safety Awareness Month in Lubbock

July declared Golf Cart Safety Awareness Month

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - July is Golf Cart Safety Awareness Month in Lubbock.

In July of 2015, 9-year-old Luke Siegel was involved in a golf cart accident with another child his age. We've followed Luke's journey from near death to the work that he and his father, Tim, do today.

Tim is the executive director of Team Luke Hope for Minds.

The city council will recognize them at their July 12 meeting.

The city says this awareness month is to warn parents and children about the dangers of operating the carts and create awareness of state laws about the use of the vehicles.
