Under a new plan being considered by county planners, Daufuskie Island could soon join the ranks of a number of small communities in the United States where cars are limited or illegal.

According to the new plan, residents would have until January 1st, 2012, to bring combustion-powered vehicles onto the island. After that, no more could be brought on, but residents who already have cars could continue to use them until the cars die.

There is really no need for cars other than golf carts on the isolated, bridgeless island near Hilton Head and would cut down on the amount of abandoned cars on the island.
