Residents in the gated Kings Point retirement community in Sun City Center can now drive their golf carts at night due to the neighborhood being ‘privately’ owned.
KINGS POINT ONLY:
This new privilege is for King Point only, so residents need to make sure and stay inside the gates once the Sun goes down – this includes not driving on the path to Sun Towers & Winn-Dixie as well.
ABOUT KINGS POINT:
Kings Point is a privately owned gated community with around 5,560 units tucked way in Sun City Center, Florida. It’s a city within a city with it’s own restaurants, cafes, bars, six concrete pools, three golf courses and two main club houses with gyms, clubs, parties and much more.
ANNOUNCEMENT FOR CARTS ALLOWED AFTER DARK:
This announcement was made by a Deputy from the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Department during a Kings Point Federation Board Meeting in December 2014.
To legally operate at night, your golf cart must have working lights and turn signals on both front and back.
OBEY TRAFFIC LAWS:
Remember, golf carts must obey all traffic laws as licensed vehicles (cars, trucks etc..) and are subject to the same citations.
Special thanks to Deputy Jason Castillo and the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office for making this possible in Kings Point.
Sandhill Cranes are practically crippled when walking on roads since that can’t get any traction due to their leg and feet anatomy that favors softer grounds.
It is a beautiful site to see these four-foot tall birds in our neighborhood, but please remember to slow down when you come up to them while driving since they are virtually disabled when walking on concrete and asphalt roads.
The SUN reported that there were an estimated 6,000 to 7,000 people that attended this year’s Fun Fest 2014 in Sun City Center, FL, accounting more than ¼ of the cities population according to the 2010 U.S Census that counted 19.258 residents at the time.
