The Bulletin issue 42.03, March, 2016 Reprinted with permission from the Property Owners Association of The Villages monthly Bulletin "Morse Boulevard, north of CR 466, is a perfect example: Keep in mind you might be right, you may have the right of way, but if you are traveling in a golf cart, you are not going to win against an automobile. You are talking about something that weighs less than a 1,000 pounds colliding with something that can weigh 3 - 5,000 pounds. It is a good idea, when on roads like Morse Boulevard to keep in mind that if you see a vehicle passing you with a right turn signal on, in order to protect yourself, slow down and yield to the vehicle. While it is aggravating, the automobile driver shouldn't turn in front of an oncoming golf cart. rather than becoming a statistic, consider yielding to the automobile. Drive defensively. If you are going to make a left hand turn from Morse Boulevard (north of CR 466), use your turn signals AND your arm signals as well, because a lot of the time your golf cart turn signal lights are covered up by golf towels, enclosures, etc. Merge into the turn lane when it is safe to do so, prior to your turn and execute your turn when the oncoming lanes are clear. Keep in mind, you are not only contending with a lane of traffic of vehicles, you are also contending with an oncoming golf cart lane".
