2010: The Golf cart crossing to Wal-Mart, opened with crowds & more than 100 carts in Sun City Center!
The carts drove across
US 301, (Under the watchful eyes of the Sheriff's Deputies) to Wal-Mart, very happy to finally, legally, get to to Wal-Mart.
Our thanks go out to
Commissioner Kevin Beckner, who was very instrumental in making this Path to Wal-Mart a reality! Thank you, and the Members
of the "Golf carts to Wal-Mart" Stearing Committee, and all others, who made this possible.
Please, Golf cart
drivers, drive with caution, be careful, drive defensibly, and obey all traffic laws! Prove to the people that made this possible,
that it was a worthful project, and
enhanced your life, by giving you the ability to get to Wal-Mart, in your Golf Cart.

Point understand, that for approximatrly 15 years, Our Resource Deputy's have on the 2nd Tuesday of each Month, in the Kings
Point North Clubhouse; Have given an excellent "Safety & Security Seminar". I have been asked by numerous residents
in, Kings Point, why the Sheriff's Office stopped this Seminar! I have also been told that the Kings Point North Clubhouse,
stopped the Seminar, not the Sheriff's Office, if so, the Residents of Kings Point, want it back! UPDATE! "The
Seminar, is again being held, and just as good as ever." Please attend!

DRIVING TIPS AS WE AGE (From the Florida Drivers Handbook)
Older drivers enjoy the use of their Golf Carts and they handle them with skill. There is no reason why they should not continue
to drive as long as they are in good health and keep up-to-date with the Florida Traffic Laws.
The passing years, unfortunately, take their toll so gradually
that we ourselves are not aware of the change. Deterioration of vision, hearing or reaction develops almost unnoticed until
we find ourselves faced with an emergency that we are no longer equipped to handle.
The result is an accident that the driver could easily have
averted a few years, or even months, earlier.
Frequently reported errors made by older drivers include inattention,
failure to drive in the proper lane, and failure to signal or to observe STOP signs and signals.
If you have any doubts about your driving ability! Please
get (and heed) your Doctor's frank advice!
