Golf Cars - The Follow-Up

For those interested in the follow-up to my last blog on the Town of Erie's consideration to allow golf carts on some city  streets, you can get the full story here.

Basically, the decision was made to allow golf carts as a mode of transportation, with certain restrictions. To me, this represents a big step in changing the way people think about how they get around and will ultimately make Erie's neighborhoods quieter, safer, and friendlier. It may also lead to some changes in the way streets and neighborhoods are designed. More compact and better connected developments may be one outcome of this decision.

And while golf carts may not be as pollution-free as walking or riding your bike, it is likely that they are an improvement over the 200-horsepower automobiles that people are currently using for local trips around Erie. Happy motoring, Erie!
