Default Today's Daily Sun Article

Today's Daily Sun had a great article about the Mulit Modal Paths. The article reminded us that the multi modal paths are for ALL to enjoy....not just golf carts. The paths are for use by walkers, joggers, bicycles, segways, roller blades. Paths are NOT to be used by Smart Cars or motorcycles. The article also stressed the need for care and courtesy by all.

Just my 2 cents worth: Those on the path are our neighbors or friends and family of our neighbors. Some may be careless, rude, inconsiderate or just plain stupid, but they are our neighbors. Please treat all of our neighbors with the courtesy and respect that you would want. They all pay the same fees to use the paths as you! It's a beautiful day in The Villages...do your part to keep it beautiful.

I was able to read this article on the on-line edition of The Daily Sun. Agree with you -- it was a great article.

What about street legal carts and gem cars should they be on the path.Personally I dont think they should but whatever. Is'nt that why they wanted street legal so they didnt have to run the path.

They CANNOT use streets such as hwy 466. Street legal are only supposed to go 25 mph and not allowed on streets with speed limits above 35 mph.

SOOOOO yes they can and must use multi-modal paths in a case like that.

The Daily Sun does have a way with marketing things. A multi-modal path that by its design places conflicting interests on the same pathway creating extraordinary hazards is well praised by said paper to be an engineering miracle.

You're joking, right? Everyone that visits me thinks those paths are the most amazing things they have ever seen

I certainly would not characterize the pathways as creating "extraordinary hazards" for anyone.

But hey, that's just me . . .

I think the multi modal paths are great. I use them as much as possible to avoid the main roads and wish TV had more. I feel the only causes of hazards are careless operators. I see nothing wrong with the design of these paths. They are not perfect but better than nothing at all. If anything without these paths I think there would be many more car / cart accidents than there are now.
