That is really a new one for me. HHMMM I would hope not. I don't think so. Sounds like a rumor to me.

Downtown Oakland, CA recently removed all their street parking meters and installed one collections device on each side of a block that accepts credit cards and debit cards!

I think the meter readers can drive by and get a wifi signal from the collection box that tells them who's time is up.

DonnaLee, I hope you're right. Can you see 2 golf carts in one spot and the owners are duking it out as to who's goin' to put the coin in the meter????? Hysterical.

LOL

LOL I did not even think of that. Many times we go with friends and park 4 to one parking place. I would not mind seeing golf carts only around the square and cars to the parking lots.

since it's custom in tv to park at least two and up to 4 golf carts in a parking spot meters would present interesting changes.
i wonder if is there any validity to this parking meters on the square rumor?
who would "police" it, collect fares etc?

Speaking of parking golf carts...I was amazed how everyone had their carts backed in and parked so close to each other...we newbies moving down...and wet behind the ears... when it comes to golf carts...do we have to go to school before we are left loose in TV with our golf carts? Is there a certain format we need to know on how and where we can park? How many carts can fit into one parking spot? Is the rule...never take a full parking spot with one golf cart? Cue us green horns in.

If you have a 4 seater golf cart, it is suggested you back in. This will put the back of your cart over the curb and prevent it from sticking out in the street.

Also, Sumter County Sheriff's offices offers a class in golf cart driving once a month. We took it and it was very good.

Do you have to live in Sumter County to take their golf cart driving course?

I was not aware of any county having a manadatory golf cart course, now that doesn't mean that it wouldn't be a good idea for everyone to take one.

Golf cart driving is very easy and simple...You won't have any trouble down here , If you have question just ask the cart next to you....The people here are wonderful and very thoughful of new kids on the block......Any time you stop , Just pull out a map and you will quickly have a half dozen carts or cars stop to help........I know its hard to believe but just try it , you'll see what I mean....
