I have noticed a few installs around the Villages and thought maybe those folks might chime in on their performance....
That's where I put mine, had the Villages golf store do it. It really helps at night,

I’m going To get one of the locomotive, or barge lights, or better yet lighthouse lantern put on front of my golf cart and turn night into day. I won’t care if it blinds oncoming traffic cause the lights can’t be adjusted not shine in the eyes of on coming traffic, after all it about me don’t care if I blind them.

LOL ... Or you could just get a little piece of the sun and tape it to the front of your cart ... use good tape and wear oven mitts ...

Think of the carts driving toward you on the trail. They are blinded

These added lights should only be used when there is no oncoming traffic and a separate an/off switch should be installed for easy control. They should never be directly activated when the normal headlights are turned on or you will blind oncoming traffic as well as traffic in front of you when they use their mirrors. Just simple politeness and use of technology makes it acceptable for everyone.

I had an aircraft landing light put in my patrol car spotlight for nighttime stops; I could see every movement going on in those vehicles.

Hey that’s good idea, think I’ll add 4. Two at bottom of the windshield and two off the rain canopy roof. Point them up so I can go raccoon hunting.
