Low-speed electric vehicles on the fast track among seniors

A growing trend in transportation for seniors is low-speed electric vehicles. Gary Search owns two golf carts. One for him to go golfing in and the other to take his wife out to dinner and shopping in, he says. After retiring to the Villages in Florida, Gary Search didn’t have to search far for the right ride. They’re all over. It’s crawling with low-speed electric vehicles. Here, there are more carts than cars. For people who’ve never been here, it is quite the sight. “With over 60,000 golf carts in the Villages, it’s a major form of transportation,” said Search. “You have to register just like a car and you have to get insurance,” Carroll explained.
