GOLF CARTS 2 WALMART – GC2W – Sun City Center – Hillsborough County

TAMPA – In the neighborhood of Sun City Center, the golf cart is king. Every day hundreds of residents use golf carts on the streets in this south Hillsborough County community. Hillsborough County commissioners are considering building a cart path across a field from East Del Webb Boulevard to a signalized crossing at U.S. 301 and Cape Stone Avenue. The path will cost about a quarter of a million dollars according to Public Works Director Bob Gordon.

Recently, a group calling itself GolfCarts2Walmart, or GC2W, launched a petition drive that garnered 4,400 signatures. A resident has met with state Department of Transportation officials to make sure they had no objections to golf carts crossing at Cape Stone Avenue. DOT is supportive of the crossing. Gordon said if the commission approves the project the developers will probably convey an easement and the project should be completed by late January or early February 2010.

Golf carts and cars and trucks on the same roads have the potential for serious injuries. If you have been injured in a golf cart accident, call the TRIPP LAW FIRMPersonal Injury Law for an immediate case evaluation. We are available 24 hours a day.
