I can even drive up 466A if I make the left off Powell towards 301 then up because speed limit is 35 or under over there.

Aside from that, is there anything that makes golf carts on "Villages Property" only open to Villages residents? Never heard that but I guess it's possible.

And finally, why is something that needs to be reported? It's not like they are coming to take over the BOGO booze happy hour at the squares. It's just a golf cart unless they have machine guns mounted on top.
How do you legally cross 44, isn't the 45MPH?
Further, I pay for the cart paths, outsiders do not.

Exactly!

There is currently nothing stopping someone from bringing their cart into The Villages through places like Southern Trace/Spanish Springs/Brownwood/Etc., on a trailer, unloading it...and driving anywhere they want.

Unless of course, 'Da Family' decides that every homeowner cart must be registered (like boats/cars/motorcycles) and that registration is prominently displayed...so as to identify any non-Village homeowner carts.

Even with that requirement, if a non-registered cart was seen...what then?

Call the MMP police and their V-8 powered (Quietech/EFI of course)...golf carts?

Orrrr, build a wall completely around TV, not allow any public/non-Villager vehicles of any kind...and make Lake/Sumter/Marion counties pay for it?

And yes, I know, most of the roads are owned/maintained...by the counties.

After all, it's not like the additional 'damage' done to MMP's/roads from whatever minuscule % of non-Villager carts that managed to get here...could ever be measured.

And all county taxpayers...help pay for 'most' of our roads.

So I guess as long as a non-Villager didn't use the MMP's with their golf cart and just stayed on the neighborhood (and those like Morse, north of 466) roads...you would be OK with that?

Probably not, given the amount of other people's dog's poop in the yard...needed to navigate around.

Someone else’s post is somehow a reflection on you ? I am not sure I follow that.

A LSV of any kind (like a street legal Golf cart) can legally CROSS at a traffic signal any road but can't drive on it if it is over 35mph as long as the other side of the road where you are crossing to is also a 35mph or less road. A LSV can DRIVE ON any road that is 35mph or less unless SPECIFICALLY PROHIBITED by the jurisdiction.

I can legally cross over 441, 44, 466A, 466 etc.
