    ALBANY, Mo. -- Soaring gasoline prices drive a northwest Missouri town to join the growing trend of legalizing the use of golf carts on city streets.

    Officials in Albany this week passed an ordinance to allow golf carts on streets within the city limits. City Administrator Derek Brown said several residents asked the city to legalize the use of golf carts, saying the practice would be cheaper than traveling around town in a car.

    The city of 1,900 will require a $15 annual permit for each cart. A seven-foot orange flag must be attached to each cart so they can be easily seen by motorists.

    Brown said several other communities have moved to allow the use of golf carts to save money on fuel.

    cities and towns have restricted speed limits.

    Would you say the same thing about mopeds, cooper minis and bicycles?

    And the Majority of people who follow the speed limit is?

    Yes, I love how people on mopeds think they don't have to use the bike lane

    ummm cooper minis are Automobiles and have excellent safety ratings so I don't see why you include those

    Yes, I love how Bicyclists don't use the bike lanes

    I think it's stupid, too. They are too big to fit in the bike lane and too slow and cumbersome to ride in with the big boys.

    Evolution in action.

    uh, the MAJORITY? How many times to you barrel down a 25mph school zone doing 80? And no, mopeds don't have to use the bike lane in this state. You run over a moped driver and your ass loses your license.

    I included cooper minis because, safety rating or not, they are still no match for a collision with a hummer.


    and, again, bikes get to use the road too.


    did you have anything else you'd like to add?

    HA!

    yea, evolution indeed. Run over any of the above and see what happens to you. this particular city voted in this ordinance for their streets. If you can't gel then don't go there. THEY will still be saving on gas money while you are out crying about gas prices.

    Don't worry, I try to avoid MO. Good luck picking up chicks on your golf cart.

    :rofl:

    meh.. I've never been into the kind of chicks that have a gold digger standards anyway. A car is a car and, clearly in your case, a ho is a ho. I'll take an intellectual woman whose personal identity isn't wrapped up in what kind of car her boyfriend drives all day long.


    and, if my golf cart had the body style of an early model Tbird convertable....
