Keeping you in the loop. Nothing has been reported from the village,
but here is follow up, the rest of the story, of the resolution by the Village
of Palmetto Bay to study the feasibility of allowing motorized golf carts to
use the county's Old Cutler Trail, a shared use path. In short, the Miami-Dade County
Transportation & Public Works Department (DTPW) issued this response:
The DTPW specifically cited Florida Department of Transportation standards saying:
"...the conflicts between the golf carts and the shared use path users (pedestrian and bikers) would create significant safety and operational problems..."
“This is a big win for cyclists and pedestrians in Miami-Dade County. Thank you MDTPW for your wise decision!”
There has been no word whether the Palmetto Bay Policing unit will enforce the no motorized vehicle rule on the Shared Use Path (which is not a bike lane).
