Rules to Live By- Golf Carts
Per the Coastal Oaks Rules and Regulations:
1) Motor vehicles shall be operated within Coastal Oaks in accordance with all laws of the State of Florida. The driver of any motor vehicle, golf cart, or electric vehicle must have a valid, state issued operator's license.
2) All Florida Dept. of Transportation laws are in effect for all golf carts within Coastal Oaks and Nocatee.
"Each year, there are approximately 13,000 golf cart-related accidents that require emergency room visits, and that number is rising, according to data compiled by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission. About 40 percent of those accidents involve children younger than 16. Half result from kids falling out of a moving cart. That is a highly disproportionate number of young people getting hurt when you consider that most golf carts are still used by adults on golf courses."
With our quickly growing community, traffic and safety at our bus stops is of mounting concern. I recently contacted the Transportation Department of the St. Johns County School District regarding some concerns that were brought to my attention.
The response from St Johns County is as follows:
"Our recommendation to them is to park their cars remotely from the actual bus stop location and walk the children to the stop. This would accomplish a few things in the spirit of safety. The bus stop location would not be clogged up with autos and the children would be standing and ready to board the bus when the bus arrives at the stop. Another issue of concern is the practice of children running hastily from their respective vehicles as the bus is pulling up to the stop is dangerous in its self as they are running through traffic and parked autos.
We here in St Johns County have many bus stops with multiple children at them. With regular cooperation from their parents a safe environment is created by all involved."
Please help keep our community safe and heed the advice of our County Official. If inclement weather or other conditions require you to drive to the bus stop please take care to only park on one side of the street and be conscience of the traffic in the area.
*Please note the dumpsters located throughout the community are for construction use only and should not be used by residents.
