This Week's Poll
Fulton County authorities are considering an ordinance that would allow licensed drivers to operate golf carts on county roads. Good idea? Please select the response that most closely represents your view.

Please select one:
1. – Very good idea. Golf carts make a lot of sense for a lot of people – just like all-terrain vehicles make sense for local farmers. The ordinance includes common sense safety features. I’m for it.
2. – Doesn’t matter to me.
3. – Not such a good idea. Golf carts are slow and drivers aren’t used to seeing them on county roads – whether or not they have blinking lights. Someone is going to get hurt. I’m against it.
