Dodging golf carts in Qualicum Beach

I recently became aware that golf carts are soon to be allowed in Qualicum Beach on the public roads as licensed vehicles.

I recently became aware that golf carts are soon to be allowed in Qualicum Beach on the public roads as licensed vehicles. Well now there’s a novel idea eh!

One can now not only deal with some of the larger vehicle driving disasters but slow moving and erratic elders on their way to the liquor store. Parking stalls can now be altered to accommodate two units each and… wait for it! Dedicated golf cart lanes adjacent to the bike lanes!

I surmise there will be “border patrols” to stop one going from say Eaglecrest over to French creek to get a load of plywood? But as a positive we can get twice as many vehicles into the roundabout.  This coming disaster boggles the mind.
