The tunnels roof have angle slant to it, you’re two seater is no different than any other cart in height unless you’ve jacked iit up? You have to huge the center when entering in any cart. You can see all the damaged stucco at the corner where carts have smacked the tunnel by turning too close to right.

Some people just can’t drive or watch where their going, behind driver and when exiting the tunnel and going around smacked the concrete divider dead center. IMO it I was going to buy used cart I would check out the under carriage real good?

Since the purpose of a LSV is to be able to drive on the roads within The Villages, why would you be driving on the Multi Modal paths and going through those tunnels?????

Tunnels north of 466a tend to be close, dark and sometimes damp. Conversely, south of 466a they are wider, more open and must be better drained as they never seem damp. Another amenity that The Villages improved as they moved south. They learn from their mistakes.

Here is a bit from the CDD website:


"Who is allowed to use the multi-modal paths throughout The Villages?” This is a question that the District receives on a regular basis. The multi-modal paths are for use by NON-AUTOMOTIVE, non-vehicular traffic such as bicycles, golf carts, pedestrians, and skaters. It is not legal…nor is it smart…to drive vehicles such as smart cars, motorcycles, or mopeds on any of the multi-modal paths in The Villages. For additional information, please click on the header of this announcement to read a memo from District Counsel regarding the use of multi-modal paths.

It's not just the actual height and width of a cart that can cause a problem going through a tunnel...it's also the approach that can get ya.

As proof, the east entrance to the Saddlebrook tunnel under Buena Vista has lots of marks on the crown of the tunnel... where golf cart roofs have hit.

Par Car once got stuck in Lopez/Legacy tunnel. Folks had to wait for some heavy folks to sit in and lower the cart.

The older tunnels are short and narrow. If you start up north they grow larger the farther south you travel. The more they build the better they become!

Agreed, need to be very careful in the tunnels in the Lopez/Glenview area, but the further south you go, the easier they get. A couple years ago I was following a cart with a Christmas tree tied to the top of it. As it approached the tunnel I was screaming and honking the horn to try to warn them, but into the tunnel they drove. They didn't get very far. Needless to say, they needed a new tree as well as some golf cart repair.
