In order to keep a driver as safe as possible, certain items are required to be worn while driving. A driver needs to have a helmet, goggles/safety glasses, a mouthguard, and gloves. In addition, every buggy must have a harnessing system that is approved by the Safety Chairman. The harness system is intended to prevent the driver from sliding around within the buggy while navigating the course as well as provide restraint in case of a crash.
In addition to the above equipment, drivers are encouraged to wear long sleeve shirts and pants while driving to minimize injuries from road debris or scraping the inside of the buggy.
