You Shouldn’t drive on sidewalks

We’re still in The Villages in Florida.  This morning I was driving our golf cart back from the post office.  I was stopped and waiting to make a left hand turn into our neighborhood.  One oncoming car passed and then I saw something that made me do a double take.

The next car in line, a new model Buick, being driven by what appeared to be a lady in her 60’s.  The problem was that she was driving her Buick on the sidewalk.  She drove there for a couple hundred feet or so and then swerved back onto the road and kept going.  Luckily, there were no pedestrians or golf carts in her path.

The driver of a car stopped on the side road and I looked at each other, shook our heads and went on with our day.  I think I need a hat with rear view mirrors on it so I can stay safe on the sidewalks.
