Discussions are underway to change South Carolina law so that local communities can decide whether or not they want to allow golf carts on bicycle paths.
I'm all for home rule, but it doesn't matter where you live in this case… golf carts and bicycles don't mix. There's a reason that bikes and people have dedicated lanes. Adding golf carts to the mix is a recipe for disaster.
Even if the law passes in Columbia, local leaders should use caution before making a change that could very likely result in serious accidents and injuries.
