The point is 22 or 23 can be argued in court of law where calibration of radar could come in to question. Where 35 plus no argument. So, same could be said going 120 on interstate where the speed limit 70. Most likely you will get arrested. IMO going 30 plus in golf cart/LSV is just as criminal.

I got cussed out by a man in a cart when I was going over the golf cart bridge into the historical section.

I am not that comfortable going over the bridge so I go over cautiously. After getting to the bottom, the man yelled, “You are going too GD slow”.

This happened to me last week. My usual rely to jerks is to say under my breath, “Bless his/her heart.” I was too rattled that day to even say that.

Some people have hate in their heart. I choose not to be one of them.

I would imagine the proper place to request street signs for that area would be Lady Lake Public Works Dept, not The Villages.

Putting it in writing was a good idea.Taking it to LSL , not so much. They are COUNTY owned roads. You need to contact county DOT.

It's been awhile, but I'm pretty sure a "golf cart" can't exceed 19.5 MPG and a "LSV" 24.5 MPG, but I can't remember the exact FL statue.

My turn signal on my golf cart beeps to let me know it's on, which is awesome. But it's SOOOOO loud, it sounds like the back-up beepers. So if I'm turning I use it so everyone knows I'm going to turn - but if I'm turning from an actual "turn lane" I don't use it. The fact that I'm in that lane should be sufficient warning that I'm planning on turning. Sitting at a traffic light with that thing beeping into my brain is tolerable once per trip. I can't handle more than that!

Other than that kind of situation, I use my turn signal. And of course I remember to turn it off after I turn because of that dag-blasted beep pestering me til I do!

You would think so and so did I so I went to a Villager who has lived here on Schwartz since the very beginning and went with his guidance. He is normally on the money with his advice. The people at The Villages office gladly accepted my suggestion and had someone come out to make sure they were Chrystally Clear about exactly where the trouble spots were. I was very pleased that someone cared enough to speak with me. Maybe its the first job on Monday?

My cart will not exceed 20 mph on flat land. I get passed quite a bit. Am I considered a "slow poke"?

I use my blinkers (directionals) all the time. They are silent but they are self cancelling......just like a car self cancels after a turn.

Mine does a flat 20 on a level road, downhill, 27 tops, but I don't let it go that fast.

That's an interesting point. The statute states the the golf cart cannot be CAPABLE of exceeding 20mph. I wonder if some officer having a bad day could cite you for free-rolling downhill at 27mph. I'm talking "technicality" obviously because there would never be a speed trap set at the bottom of a hill (except in NJ).

Clear the roads...................I'm heading over to Belle Glade this morning to plan a crappy golf course and I'm going to pass every golf cart along the way.

My 2019 stock Yamaha PTV Drive 2 does 20 mph stock. It said the speed was set to 19.5 mph. Checked it on a gps and it was exactly 20 mph. It can be adjusted to go a lot faster, but not advised, due to heavier wear and reliability. Pass if allowed and it can be done safely.
