Default Crossing 441/27 in a cart

Using the search function, I was not able to find a real answer to the question: Other than using the bridge, can you cross over 441/27 at one of the stop lights by a non-street legal cart?
I found a lot of answers, "Why would you want to?" and "You're taking your life in your own hands," etc etc, but what I'd really like is a factual answer (with a link, if possible, also) Thanks!

I see Stonecresters doing it all the time to get to Walmart and Lowes.

Can't provide a link but the simple answer is no. Unless the county permits golf carts crossing a public thoroughfare, they cannot legally do it. Stonecrest has authorized permission to cross at the one light. Otherwise, no city, county or state authority exists to make it legal to cross 441/27 via golf cart. Of course, you can do so in a motorized wheelchair, scooter, on a bike and on foot but not via golf cart.

Lake County won't even permit a street legal cart to cross Rolling Acres, so those crossing there risk a hefty ticket along with their lives.

So if Stonecresters can cross over to The Villages at a light (which light) couldn't Villagers cross over at the same light?

Two different things.

There is a legal crossing for a regular Golf cart at street level, but it can only take you to Spruce Creek at SE 175st place. I don't think there is a way from Spruce Creek into the villages.






I am sure there are people living in Spruce Creek and stonecrest who have a village gate card (illegally?) to enter into the historic section, from there they can go over the bridge.

They can cross over to get to Lowe's, etc. we can cross over to get to Stonecrest but nowhere else and we'd still have to use the bridge and path to get to that light. The legal crossing light is, I believe, near Wal-Mart in Marion County. No way to get to it from TV's side.

I keep seeing the designations of "legal crossings" and "authorized permission" but no one has really confirmed that these privileges really exist. Can anybody confirm?

Do a search for Marion County golf cart crossing. There are a couple of news items from 2014 when the county commissioners authorized it.

It is only legal to cross 441/27 at the designated crossing at the entrance to Spruce Creek South. This has been approved by Marion County. No other crossing for a golf cart has been authorized. Those that do can be ticketed. Now you could push it across, legally but you cannot drive it across.

...OR you can invest in a street legal cart and cross at any of the lights.
