Ever Wanted To Go Faster On Your Golf Cart?

facebook-image-golf-cart-speed-increasePeachtree City April Fools Day Joke! After months of debate and council Peachtree City has made an official change in the speed limit for golf carts in Peachtree City. Based on popular demand and the input from many around the city the 20 mph golf cart speed limit has been lifted and replaced with a 30 mph golf cart speed limit.

There were many factors that influenced this change. Some of the main factors are as follows.

1. The world is suffering from global warming (as was evident this winter in Peachtree City) and golf carts are our way to stop it. Because golf carts go so slow its discouraging many from using their golf carts and instead they are driving. By increasing the golf cart speed limit Peachtree City hopes to encourage more people to drive their golf carts. With this increased speed limit golf carts can travel on the golf cart paths from the Northern parts of Peachtree City to the most Southern parts in almost half the time.

2. Too many people are late to work because their golf carts can’t drive fast enough. As a result the overall productivity at the workplace has seen a dramatic decline in Peachtree City. Now that golf carts can go faster we won’t have this problem.

3. Many of the businesses that sell golf carts have seen a decline in profit. So as a way to help them the city has increased the speed limit. With the increased speed limit many golf cart owners will take their golf carts in to have them suped up to be able to meet the new 30 mph speed limit. This will mean more revenue for the golf cart businesses and more taxes for the government.

4. Last but not least driving a golf cart around Peachtree City is one of the main forms of entertainment for residents and we don’t want people to get bored of it. Now that the speed limit is 30 mph the city feels that driving a golf cart in Peachtree City will continue to be what entertains Peachtree City residents for years to come.
