Whether golf carts should be allowed on busy, summer streets can be argued, the abundance of stupid driving cannot. Just Friday afternoon, an idiot pulled right out in front of my car without looking. He had two young children on board, and neither was buckled in.
This summer, the Cape Charles Police will be turning up the heat on GSD (Golf Cart Stupid).
If you witness GSD and do not see a police officer in the vicinity, please call dispatch at (757) 678-0458 to report the idiots.
