  1. So it is now legal to operate go-carts on streets/roads ?

    Apparently this woman did, or didn’t care.

    Chalk this one up as another Darwin Award winner.

  2. Both of you are completely jackasses, someone lost their life cause they were obviously not paying attention to the road

  3. Speaks Truth: Were you a cart passenger or eye-witness?

    How do you know it wasn’t a medical condition of the driver?

    It may have well been beyond anything the driver could control or anticipate! You’re the jackass!
