Default Golf cart registration

I have been in the villages for a few years now. During my trips on our golf cart there have been many reasons it would be helpful to be able to identify a golf cart. (Report an accident, vandalism,theft, reckless driving, carts from outside the villages using trails, just to name a few)
Maybe it is time to register each golf cart and have a type of license plate for identification??

No, no, and definitely not. More fees and ways to be monitored. Very bad idea.

No, No, No. Then the plates will be stolen and someone would have to pay to replace them. More money out of someone's pocket for doing what is required. And who will monitor/ticket those that don't comply?

This has be posted and 'discussed' a few times, I feel your pain, but probably not practical.

Ahhh...bigger government and involvement. NOPE! Bad, horrible and utterly insane lack of common sense idea. Don't forget to chip everyone so we can tell where they've been and where they are....perhaps video cams on every corner and satellite coverage.

Perhaps you might consider investing in a dash cam that could be permanently affixed to your cart to serve your identification needs.

You may want to revisit the comments made when you asked about this on June 12. I don’t think you’ll get any different answers this time around.

The above post deserves a greater Thanks than just hitting the thumbs up button: )

Are you serious? Yes, lets register them so we can pay for tags, annual renewals, annual safety inspections, (what? you added something to your golf cart? - that is not authorized), and better yet - lets start a property tax for the golf carts. Ok, sorry - I went there.

No, no, no. Please take that idea back up north where they do that kind of thing.

Either rules or vigilantes. You pick.
