In Florida’s Golf Car kingdom, The Villages, a resident wrote to the Villages News on the importance of obeying traffic rules.

“I have lived in The Villages for over 20 years and I am amazed that no one has brought up the subject about the law of yielding,” Larry Wells wrote. “On the side streets where there is only a trail that separates the cart from the car traffic and when the cart comes to a yield sign they never yield to the car traffic. I have had carts pull in front of me when only ten feet separated us. Oh, the driver stuck out his hand and yes I had to brake hard to keep from killing him. Please, please someone get the message out the yield sign is for the golf cart, not the moving traffic.”
