Seriously?

The same MMP's that have permanent benches...to do exactly that?

-<clip>-

Are you saying the permanent benches were put there for golf cart drivers to park and rest? I thought they were for people walking/running/biking/walking dogs or cats who want to sit down and relax and look at the view.

If that's the case they should put charging stations at each bench for us electric cart drivers.

Serveral or many will result in the sherrif telling his officers not to let it happen again.
A group of carts parked along the MMP in the grass. Why should we believe that this should not be adressed again in the future.

They are there for all the above.

Have yet to see any signs saying; "Reserved for...."

Nothing positive will come from griping on an Internet board.
I posted the original comments. I was not a party to the issue but I did post the experience of two persons who actually shared their experience. Both letters were signed by name. The person who shared the deputy making everyone move from the grass along the cart path stated he is a Villages resident and was one of those directed to move along.

Wait a minute. There was no accident so that isn't a question.. So why is it that Cops cannot give you a speeding ticket for driver on the non street cart paths. We residents own these golf cart paths, it is private property. There are benches in these grassy areas for people who would like to take a break and sit awhile.

While I do not think any law was broken WRT golf carts specifically I honestly don't think the grass along the MMP was ever intended as a parking lot for golf carts. For a quick stop for an "emergency" like to check a map or answer a call or maybe even make a U-turn possibly but not for parking dozens of carts. As for whether local PD had or has authority to chase people away if it was given to them by TPTB in that specific circumstance they likely would. I honestly don't believe it was ever "officially" intended for golf cart PARKING. For one thing, eventually a lot of use would destroy the grass near those rest stops, I mean benches.

Get real, this was not being used as a parking lot. It was a one time happening that probably would have occurred for just minutes.

Excuse me?

Please take the time to read ALL of my posts (particularly post #3)...in this thread.

The "humor" was simply in response to providing plug-ins for electric carts (ridiculous of course)...at the benches on the MMP's.
