True story-Sunday I'm heading west on 30-A in Blue Mountain/Dune Allen area. I come up behind a street legal golf cart on the long straight portion around Lake Allen and Oyster Lake. Road is empty, and indeed, the cart was going a brisk 23 MPH in a 35 MPH zone. I would have been perfectly within my right to pass this fellow, but he had his left turn signal on. So I followed him at the maddening pace long enough to figure out he had no clue the blinker was on. Finally, just as the cart's left turn signal went off, it was replaced by the right turn signal and he turned off to the right. Arrgghh! Yes, it did set me back 45 seconds which I will never recover and that makes me mad.
First it was the year of "Trash on the Beach"
Next it was the year of "Plastic Toy Junk on the Beach"
Followed by the year of "Giant Holes on the Beach"
Then it was the year of "Tent Cities on the Beach"
Looks like 2012 is "Golf Carts at the Beach"
Need to start a new thread called: "Golf Cart Horror Stories"
In preparation for the upcoming season--just who should the attorneys contact to serve papers for wrongful injury/death & damage as a result of misuse of these vehicles?
jim, thanks for a reasonable outlook on things. Thats seems to be rare these days.It is not at all legal - not only is there not space to park them, in order to reach the access they have to drive a non-street legal cart on roads or down the multi-use path (where carts are also specifically prohibited) to get to the access.But "legal" and "golf carts" are 2 concepts rarely combined except by the people selling or renting the damn things.
these vehicles are legal anyway you look at it, tagged, insured, street legal, meet all of state of florida requirements and are legal by all standards. and they are no less annoying to "crawl over" than any other car or vehicle. they have every right to park these the same place you would park a car, apparantly some people have nothing better to do than sit around and figure out what to complain about next. These vehicles are a ton of fun, and more than 60% of my customers are senior citizens with mobility problems. some people, you could hand them a bag of gold and they would complain about how heavy it is.jim, thanks for a reasonable outlook on things. Thats seems to be rare these days.
