Out of the Blue

So March is upon us, the month that's said to come in like a lion and go out like a lamb. As I look out on the frozen tundra I can only hope this is the case. As I often point out, this saying always reminds me of John Belushi's marvelous rant on SNL Weekend Update back in 1976. Here's the quote I first posted from this a couple of years ago: "There's a country where March hops in like a kangaroo, it stays a kangaroo for a while, and then it becomes a smaller kangaroo. Then for a couple of days it's sort of a cross between a frilled lizard and a common housecat. Then it changes back into a smaller kangaroo, and then it goes out like a wild dingo. And it's not Australia! Now you'd think it would be Australia, but it's not!"

Over 150,000 people a year are injured in golf cart accidents. That's insane.

Napping when tired helps? Shocker.

I suspect a large majority are street accidents around here. I live near The Villages. World's largest retiree community, 80k residents, golf cart accessible. You can drive a golf cart anywhere, not just the links. Everyone owns one as a second vehicle. For many people it's their primary vehicle. Shopping, medical plazas, etc here are all golf cart accessible. In some areas they have their own paths, but in many areas they cross or share roads with cars. We have a lot of accidents. A fatal one recently. Add the fact that Villagers like to drink and party, and it makes things more interesting. Grand Kids come visit and drive their grand parents golf carts and have no idea about traffic laws, and makes it more fun. Don't get me wrong, great lifestyle for these people, and overall it's a very safe place, but we do have to watch out for the people driving carts who think right of way laws don't apply to them, or think they can get stinking drunk and still drive one.

Around here traffic laws apply to golf carts and so do DUI regulations. You can lose your drivers license and right to drive a golf cart for a DUI in a golf cart.
