A cart can kill a pedestrian. I think there's a responsibility to operate it in a way that is the safest for all concerned. A minor annoyance to you might be a major hazard for others.
Serious question, I'm not trying to be flippant: If a truck needs a backup buzzer and a golf cart needs a backup buzzer, shouldn't a car have one, too? If not, why not? Why skip the middle-sized vehicles and limit this safety feature to just the big guys and the little guys?

This seems to be going nowhere...…………………………..
Unless you are backing up for blocks...the noise is only on for a few seconds, Geesh!

That’s because you haven’t been here long enough to see how some of these carts are driven.
If you back up and hit a pedestrian. Might have to sign your house over to them.

So how many people have disabled their buzzer because it is so damn annoying?

First thing I did.
Still am able to turn around and see where I'm going.

I think turn signals and back-up beepers are to let other drivers and pedestrians know your intentions, hopefully you the driver know.

Agree agree agree. Please annoy me. I want to know that you are backing up and may not see me.

Totally agree, the back up noise is a necessity. Changing it to music would not alert those around the cart to it backing up. Thinking of others before yourself is the right thing to do.

I guess you haven't been here long enough to know the law. In FL, if you lose a lawsuit, you CANNOT lose your home or your retirement accounts.
