Had one of those situations driving that you can see a problem going to occur and all you can do is say “No, no, no.” I was traveling south on Morse just below 466a approaching the roundabout with a car in front of me in the left lane and a car beside me in the right lane. Entering the roundabout, the car in front puts on his right blinker and I started braking waiting for the crash. Sure enough, the car in front makes a right turn into the visitor entrance to Pinellas, but fortunately, the car to my right enters the resident lane. Whew!

Things really get dicey when a car wants to take a short cut in a round-about by turning left upon entering the circle, and going the wrong direction to get to the exit it should have taken by going 3/4 the way around it. Luckily, the cars going the correct way managed to stop just in time, narrowly avoiding an accident.

Happened to me about 2 weeks ago on Buena Vista Blvd & Bonita Blvd. I'm coming around the Circle head South all of a sudden there's a car coming out of Bonita that decided to make the left and take the short cut without using the traffic circle. We exchanged a few hand signals and words and he was on his merry way at a high rate of speed.

Saw a cop stop a golf cart going north on Morse just before 466.

We need a separate for section of TOTV just for “silly things golf cart drivers do” since there is a new one just about every day.

How about this: I know people always complain about GCs going over 20mph but recently there have been numerous carts going between 9 and 10mph down the MMP between LSL and Mallory. Not quite sure which is worse. Kind of like driving 55 down Morse (35 speed limit) or driving 15 on Morse.

Maybe they're trying to slow down the hot rodder type in the souped up carts, just sayin.

Craziest ones I have seen this past month was a cart driving north in the right hand lane on 301 just north of the Wawa at 466 and 301 during the middle of the day. Cart was not street legal.

Yesterday, driving west on 466 heading towards Morse there was a policeman parked in the right hand lane with his lights going. He was waiting for church to let out so he could direct traffic. I was behind somebody in the left lane who slowed down and came to a complete stop next to the police car and just sat there holding up all traffic behind him. Might have had too much to drink ?
