With "community" schools within 2 miles of students golf cart transportation makes sense. With definate regulations.

answer this? When a golf cart is involved in a wreck with a car or a truck and its the driver of the golf cart is at fault, who's gona fix my car??? heaven forbid if someone is injured. My fuel tax on gasoline helps pave the streets, do golf carts?? "GOLF CARTS" are made for "GOLF COURSES". I wonder if the local golf course will let me drive my truck or car on the 9 th. hole green.

Only old farts will be riding on the carts. They cause enough accidents when in their cars.
Worse than cyclists.

From what I read, those opposed have valid arguments. Yet, I would not mind having one myself.
