There is a park brake on top of the foot brake (with the exception of the 8 seater cart where it is between the front seats, similar to a car)

20 miles, 3 times round the island or 1.5 to 2 hours continual run time

on Friday April 10 by jeremyp

The run time on the batteries is up to 2 hours. That equates to 20-25 miles which, when you consider the size of the island, is a lot! There is a hour meter on every cart so you can see how long you have been driving. No one has ever run out of battery - the average use is 1.5 hours. Should it ever happen, Island Carriers can recover your cart back to us (for a fee of £25).
