Another batch of brand-new golf carts (18) was seen arriving on the island on Tuesday, March 26th inside shipping containers. With the ongoing issue of traffic on the island, residents are increasingly concerned that these additional golf carts are an unnecessary addition to the saturation of motor vehicles on the island. The golf carts are allegedly for a rental company in town, which contradicts what Mayor Daniel Guerrero stated in November 2017. According to the Mayor, no more golf cart rental companies would be allowed to increase their fleet.

In a social media post, the alleged proprietor spoke of his accomplishment and the delivering of the golf carts. The San Pedro Sun reached out to the office of Mayor Guerrero, but he was unavailable for comments. Back in 2017, when questioned about new carts arriving on the island, the Mayor explained that the carts were not for rentals, but rather for dealerships. Guerrero explained that his administration was not issuing permits for new golf cart rentals, but current companies could bring additional carts in case they needed to replace used or old ones. “What is happening is that some of these companies are now becoming dealerships. Thus they are now selling golf carts, and once someone has a dealership license, they can bring in golf carts for selling,” Guerrero claimed back then that this is how private owners obtain their carts. However, islanders have reported that their applications for personal golf carts have been denied.

Golf carts do not create a traffic problem until someone is driving them. If you are going to have basically unlimited development, more condos and resorts, using the justification of creating more jobs and wanting more tourism, then guess what? There are going to be more people and more traffic. You can't have it both ways.
Efforts would be much better directed to finding ways to provide the needed infrastructure to support the population already on the island.
If people would use some intelligence, finding a solution to the traffic problem does not lie in restricting golf cart permits, it lies in having a working balance between restricting the growth and population of the island based on the ability of the infrastructure to accommodate it. People equal traffic - not golf cart permits!

They have always resisted the idea of a trolley. I still believe a plan could be put in place that would be beneficial for relieving congestion. provide a safety factor and take visitors to business around the island.
