Reporter experiences the joys of a golf cart in downtown Charleston

The Post and Courier's Bryce Donovan has tackled the issues of golf carts on downtown Charleston's streets, only Donovan has done it his usual humor-prone way.

(I'm assuming everyone out there has seen the small, but supple numbers of golf carts roaming the historic district.)

A big thumbs up to the video and story.

Here's my favorite part of the story:
OK, so the first thing I actually noticed was that every motorist was staring at me. In an attempt to diminish this awkwardness, anytime I was stopped at a red light, I would say things like:

"I know what you're thinking. And, yeah, it's got a Hemi."

"Excuse me, do you know where the 16th tee is?"

"You know, getting a DUI isn't quite as bad as you might think."

"Good luck picking up chicks in THAT thing."

But, seriously, did the man just get paid to drive a golf cart through a car wash? I think he did.

So, go check out the video and the story, they'll brighten your Thursday morning.

And if you're itching for a more nuts-and-bolts story about golf carts in Charleston, The Post and Courier did a story back in May.
