What about telling store security and asking them to move it? Or announcing it on the PA?

Well, some 'gentleman" parked his golf so close to her driver's side door that she was forced to enter via the passenger door, climb over the center console in order to get behind the wheel & start the car--no easy task for a person in their 70's and the car is an SL--thank GO\od again she's a fitness freak
Tell her next time just to put the golf cart in neutral and move it. When they come out they’ll have to find it. Normally they’re easy to roll.

WHAT. If a store has a security guard he or she is not going to get involved and how would u know in which store the offender was shopping.

That's what crossed my mind too. Golf carts park two per parking spot. Basically, the carts park very close to the parking lot lines as if they hug the lines. In order for a car to be blocked in on one side next to a cart, the car would have to be too close to the line.

Well, that answers that question. Certainly, the driver of any car or cart over the line has poor judgement in parking.

It seems like this would free up the adjacent parking spot driver door. However, if the adjacent parking spot driver backed in, well then the opposite would be true. Help!!
I always pull through in a parking spot, in a car or a golf cart, when ever a lot has those types of spaces. I will actually park farther away in a lot so I can pull through.

In a golf cart, I always pull through on the left side and go all the way to the front of the spot. This way, I can line up my tires just to the inside of the line on the left side of my cart.

Seems to me if you actually left the cart sitting in the street that more than one clown was involved in this story.

There no transmission, it’s CVT clutch, just step on gas pedal and the brake will release. It will roll free.

Maybe have the Admiral Park her 100k+ car a little further away and walk. After all you did say she is a fitness freak....

After living up north, we always park further away, it avoids a lot of door dings.

This happened to me once at Spanish Springs...I took the last parking lot sized for an auto...when we came out from The Sharon a darn golf cart had managed to squeeze in between my car and another legally parked golf cart that I had to crawl over from the passenger side door. There was no way that this golf cart driver didn't know what they were doing. The didn't car if I was a handicapped person or someone way too old to climb over from the right side. Angry? You can't believe how angry their selfish behavior made me. I left a note on their steering wheel to let them know that it seems as though someone had ''keyed' the sides of their cart

If I may change the topic slightly... Will People with those gigantic add-ons to the back of their carts please back into a parking spot instead of letting that thing stick out into traffic. Haven't seen the side of a car scrapped yet, but it has probably happened. Why not just pull it up on the sidewalk? (If you can't back it in). Better yet...how often do you use that add on to the back of your cart. Seemed like a good idea when you had it done? The garage can remove it for you. Save it in the garage for later. (Never). OK? Don't get me started on speed bumps. If we remove them the speeders will go crazy! Why aren't there any south (rare) of 466? Thank you for listening.
