Not quite accurate. LSVs can travel on roads with a maximum speed limit of 35 mph BUT a municipality can restrict movement (and many do). Lady Lake has flat out refused to allow LSVs to cross Rolling Acres to get to the Best Buy parking lot or to Home Depot or Sam's Club. Fruitland Park and Wildwood both are golf cart communities but still restrict LSV and golf cart movement on several roads and streets. It is important that those who drive LSVs find out exactly where they are permitted to operate, not just where they think they can or should.

incorrect. Street legal carts may cross any road where the speed limit is post above 35 mph as long as the road on the other side is post at 35 mph or lower.

If they are golf carts, no. If LSV, yes.

That is what I have heard too.

I have not heard they restricted LSVs. I do know they opposed letting golf carts cross. I would expect restriction signs posted if they banned an LSV and do not see any. I have seen LSV crossing all over that area.

Looks like a lot of opinions on this. I don't own a LSV, and even if I did I doubt I would cross 441 lest I become practice target of the day.

I would suggest that someone who owns a LSV and crosses these roads check with the appropriate county's sheriff's dept. and get the FACTS.

Copied directly from Lady Lake Muni Code

Authorization to operate low-speed vehicles. Low-speed vehicles may be operated within the Town limits where the posted speed limit is thirty-five (35) miles per hour or less. Pursuant to F.S. § 316.2122(1), this does not prohibit a low-speed vehicle from crossing a road or street at an intersection where the road or street has a posted speed limit of more than thirty-five (35) miles per hour.

I thought that may be the case as there are no signs in Lady Lake indicating a restriction on LSVs.
