Default Golf carts Passing

Do you think a golf cart passing 3 other carts is doing slightly more than 20 mph-have seen this often on St Charles & Bailey Tr.

Some people have a hard time retiring. Passing someone is just a macho display of their shortcomings. Just smile and find joy in the fact that you are more mature than hot rod Henry or Henrietta.

Doesn't bother me a bit. Perhaps they are in a hurry to use the facilities.

Sometimes people go around. Sometimes it is some kind of one upmanship and sometimes maybe they have to pee. I am not the slowest and I am not the fastest. Well sometimes I am. I am always early, I always plan to be a little early, because that is being a good person.

Don't ask.

Yes.
On another note, If someone is going 10mph, I will pass them if it is legal and safe to do so.

To me, being passed by a faster golf cart is about as traumatic as being passed by a faster car on the interstate or SR 466. From what I read, it seems that cart accidents are usually the result of impaired drivers, careless driving (hitting curbs, trees, etc.), failure to heed stop signs, and inappropriate turn actions.
