We have seen some news articles about them doing this. We have a Traffic Unit investigating.
Please call dispatch if you use this in progress again.

I was just stuck behind a golf cart driving on Spruce Creek Road southbound near the All Children’s Park.
It did not appear to have tail or head lights and was pulling a trailer. The driver was wearing a United Parcel Service brown uniform and the cart had the UPS logo on the front and appeared to be delivering packages.
This was about 1:45pm 10/31
This was certainly not safe for him or those driving real vehicles.

    Chief Monahan has updated me that by Florida statue any carrier with more than 10,000 employees in the state can operate golf carts on residential streets with less than 35MPH speed limits. While their are rules for lights and it is limited to Oct. 15 to Dec. ?? .
    Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that nobody gets in a crash. The city can still regulate them, and should consider not having them outside subdivisions/neighborhood streets. For example Madeline, Willow Run, Herbert, Spruce Creek, Yorktown and I am sure their are more.
