Been here since 2003 and I have NEVER seen such a thing. Not to worry, the police will deal with especially if it is as prevalent as you stated.

The original post is total b.s.
You describe it like you were sitting in their back seat!
C’mon, stand up and admit it. You probably did see them do one thing wrong and then your very imaginative mind took over your keyboard and spewed out the script of “Smokey and the Bandit”!
Stop the madness my friend, just stop.

I got your point. Just an innocent post.
Yeah, everyone wants to be a LEO; but, trust me, 99.9% of the people on here does. not. have. what. it. takes.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year...…….

Actually if what she saw was actually a street legal Smart look-alike like the Atomic which would be plated or any LSV Golf Cart for that matter it can be on the MMP's so it still might be confusing. And for those who dispute that (like the guy who stopped me the other day screaming at me) it is stated on the District Gov website with a letter from District Gov counsel regarding Street Legal/LSV golf carts being permitted on the MMPs.

It was definitely a smart car and not an Atomic. They do look similar from a distance, that's true.

I also watched a pair of golf carts crossing 441 at Wales onto Avenida Central, yesterday. I was stopped at the red light heading north on 441 on my way home (I turn in at the Boone Gate unless I have to stop to check the mail).

Prettttty sure those weren't "outsiders."

We had a smart car, I don’t think they look at all like an atomic. But it may be confusing for the older folks here.

You got that rite! Most of them would come up to the level of MeTV Presents the Best of Barney Fife - YouTube. I have NOTHING but respect for those who protect us especially in the south. They scare the hell outta me.

First thing I would have done if I saw what was described is take out the phone and take a picture or ten.

If you had ever been to Peachtree City, GA you would get the OPs point.

Happens everyday. They park their trucks with trailered carts at a shopping center in TV and drive through TV

How do you know they were heading for the path to Walmart and beyond?
