Doesn't motorized vehicles have to have a tag? I have had 2 golf carts and when you buy them you don't get a title.

Most campgrounds are private property so I wouldnt think reg is required i know where we go they do require insurance. I understand the need for some elderly folks but people my age 35 can walk or ride a bike.

In most campgrounds in Canada (with the exception of some of the large private ones) golf carts (and any other sort of motorized vehicle, for that matter) are completely prohibited so it's rare.

We spent our second last night on the road at a campground in Michigan and given it's size (over 1000 sites) it seemed that *everyone* there had golf carts, and yes, I'll agree that many of the gassers were loud and annoying. They did have rules that prevented their use after a certain hour but our quiet time around the campfire was disturbed countless times by people blasting by after dark with their carts. THe noise was one thing but the bright headlights (some people had 6 or 8 lights on their carts!) got downright annoying after a while.

We have run into golf cart problems at the beach campgrounds. The bigger problem is that the rules are not enforced by the campground. We have seen dangerous driving by young kids, that should have been stopped according to the rules. I guess that they are afraid they would lose some money from the rental of golf carts. We have wondered how someone has not been severely hurt or killed. We do see more electric than gas carts though.

The Florida State Park system has decided that as of 7/1/08 that golf carts WILL be allowed in their state parks.
We were are Lake Kissimmee SP over the recent Holiday and there were several on the streets at all times.

I believe it is okay for a handicapped person to have one. If he has a handicapped tag for his car, and if he is camping a handicapped spot then that person might need one - but otherwise I am against them in these common areas.

I have emailed the parks system - might not do any good - but I primarily frequent state parks and this is NOT a welcome site and/or change for me!

I found the electric carts to be much more acceptable. Some were so quiet that the only noise you could hear was the rocks crumbling under the tires.

If someone NEEDS a means of getting around I guess I can put up with one, whether gas or electric but I have to admit it POs me a little bit to find folks using them to get to the trail head so they can go for a hike (and I've actually seen this more than once). I've never understood why but on a recent trip to Shenandoah National Park we noticed that at every trail head we found handicapped parking signs. It's kind of hard to imagine someone who was unable to walk the extra 50 feet from the furthest parking spot but could still hike up and down a mountain side ????. I think someone has "run amuk" in DC :D (whodathought?)

Here's one I read about: A guy was driving the two blocks to his local YMCA for his morning work out and writing to complain that he had to park in the back of the lot whenever he went there. What a shame :?:

Golf carts in the Florida State Park systems will turn out to be a colossal mistake, but hey, it is run by politicians who never claim to be too bright.
