    Traffic Issue - violation? I'm asking you.

    I live in a 55 or older golfing community. Our streets are @ 3 lanes wide to accommodate golf cart driving. Golf carts are to drive on the right side of the road and our speed limit is 25 mph...
    OK - I'm driving the golf cart and the road bottle necks into one lane - so I am now merged in with general traffic at the intersection. We proceed thru the intersection - the road widens & I move to the right & proceed as the traffic on my left is driving by. all good so far. I'm still on the right side of the road and traffic on my left is slowing down - I'm still going as I am now even with this vehicle on my left - this vehicle is going a little slow & I am now faster than the vehicle. There's @ 2 car lengths gap since this vehicle is going slow - I'm now needing to make a left soon as I'm now passing this slow vehicle - I proceed - put my blinker on - merge to the left side & soon make a left hand turn.
    Is there a problem?
    what do you think?

    Re: Traffic Issue - violation? I'm asking you.

    It all sounds perfectly sensible to me...that doesn't mean anything though. Is there some law about golf carts not being where you were in the road or something?

    well, If you were within the speed limit for your vehicle, and not impeding the cars progress, I don't see a problem.

    Re: Traffic Issue - violation? I'm asking you.

    Within the UK there is a specific rule that allows you to pass traffic on the inside if the traffic is travelling in lanes (for example at a set of traffic lights or at a junction).

    Without this rule it would be classed as undertaking and therefore an offence.

    I do not know whether the rules in the US follow this pattern?

    Re: Traffic Issue - violation? I'm asking you.

    My golf cart was going the speed limit and the cart is allowed on our roads as long as your not impeding traffic. In this issue my cart was moving faster then the vehicle on my left.
    Well out of the blue comes this white truck honking his horn & screaming at me - he ripped me a new one I really didn't get his rage.
    He saw me passing the slow vehicle on the right and of course your not suppose to pass on the right.
    I wasn't passing - he wanted to call the police - I said call them - I live right here.
    I just don't see this as a illegal move.
    What was I suppose to do - stop in the right hand lane & wait for the parade of cars to go by?
    The pissed off guy in the white truck is my neighbor down the street..
    Life is good

    some folks just aren't happy unless they are getting angry at others.
    Patsy I don't think you did anything wrong either... what options did you really have.

    Re: Traffic Issue - violation? I'm asking you.

    I really didn't get the problem - apparently this white truck guy was stuck in line behind the slow vehicle & was getting heated before approaching me.
    The dumb look on my face made him madder - OMG he was in a rage
    I'm sure he feels better picking on me - it's that kind of year..

    That is road rage. it's a man thing, and you are a woman..................trust me.............it is him that has the problem.....he's a professional driver and you happened to be a female....in a golf cart......and in his way.

    Don't let him worry you.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    Mag - too funny
    I wasn't the one mad - I told the guy to quit screaming & asked what is the problem?
    I really had no idea why he was mad.
    He called me a stupid bitch & a few others etc.. I told him his mouth was not productive - call the cops I live right here you a$$ -would you like to talk to my hubby? he fired up his tires & went home.
    this guy was tooo in raged to provoke.

    I have used those weapons in the past
