    Who's guessing this is a tourist? lol
    Why do these people seem to leave their brains at the State line?

    He should have gotten a ticket. I guess like everything else certain laws are enforced and others ignored. Would it have been worse if he were an illegal alien or would you have had pity?

    I really wish I had taken the photo of the SUV that did the exact same thing in the rain over the summer.

    LSV's don't cause bad driving, the oblivious morons do. I've heard that rhetoric before and I didn't like that organizations ideals either.

    All that being said a friend of ours has a golf cart on the west end of 30A near Goat Feathers. He uses it to drive to the beach club, Gulf Place, and Bally Hoo's. He was floored when I explained this thread to him. His question was why a mode of transportation designed for a very small radius was being proposed as a long distance travel method?

    Here's some standards of golf cart use in a work setting on a restricted area:

    The preceding was brought to you by a state that passed a law allowing guns in bars.

    Do LSVs include mopeds? I know the tourists love them, but they've become an eye sore / noise nuisance on scenic 98.

    No - they are street legal and most are fairly high speed. Kinda cool to see them zipping around an Italian town but annoying in most tourist spots. Yet a ton of fun and energy efficient. Also quite dangerous as most people who rent are novices.

    I suspect that in coming years most will be electric and quiet.

    Cool fun vehicles attract morons who just want to step on the pedal and forgo understanding the laws or operators manual.
