Well after fourteen pages of discussion on this issue I am convinced that the only solution to all of this is to declare Prohibtion in all three counties that encompass The Villages. Beside it is more benefiting for seniors to travel down to the town square for some lemonade or a root beer....

PS Talk Hos I would never demonize LOE. wha I said all along is that like any profession or trade there are always some bad apples. Much of this thread has been mischaracterized in that manner and that is not what folks mean or are saying

Default Still Want To Know

I would still like to know how someone who is not driving, will not be driving, but is drinking while sitting on/in your cart, is a danger to anyone on the roads? Some of these posts seem to be from people that don't like drinking, period.

Default Drinking

I really do not care about a solution. When we get a clear answer,let me know. I will be at Lake Sumter Landing in my cart having a beer. Ps. Do you really think I care.

I am too, by the way. I never could get the hang of it.

I enjoy watching other people and pouring drinks for them.

I have far fewer headaches. And even a couple of people think I am fun...(If I pay them to say it)
Gracie, you ARE fun! (and you know where to send the check.......)

I am sorry that I stated my mind,but to avoid further controversy,I think all the well meaning folks that have been involved in this thread should just shut it down before we let a small infraction cause a big difference in the way life is lived in paradise

The reason for "shutting it down" would be to avoid the truth perhaps...We wouldn't want it to get out that "paradise" does have problems and is not quite the Utopia put forth by the powers to be...That being said,in the big picture,this is utopian and I can think of nothing better..That does not mean there is no room for improvement...It's a great place,with diverse opinions,and only a " few badge heavy abusers of power"...The policy is all that needs to be addressed and a grass roots level (not through the media) attempt by local gendarmes to improve there likeability,and perhaps demonstrate a little respect for the hand that feeds them...They in turn will gain the respect their profession so justly deserves...jmho

Thumbs down It is a Shame

It is a shame that a number of residents have not experienced or been
involved in terrible vehicle accidents because of the drug alcohol. If
you are sitting in you car along a highway and have an open container
you will be ticketed.
Driving a golf cart, and it is a fair conclusion that if you are in a cart you
will be driving it, and if you are drinking alcohol it is safe to assume that some of your judgement is impaired, and if you are driving it home or to another
square it is statistically reasonable that you are at a higher risk of an accident and could/would put someone else health and well being at risk. Conclusion: By drinking the driver is putting others at risk who do not use the drug alcohol. Yep, tickets should be given out and the consequesnce pretty strong to stop the practice.

Poor choice of words Penn. I know what you're trying to say, but the way you stated it leaves it open to interput that you want people to have experienced or been involved in accidents. You might want to clearify what you meant!
