A confused golf cart driver received some direction after straying along Morse Boulevard.
The golf cart driver was southbound on Morse Boulevard on Saturday afternoon when he crossed County Road 466 and continued toward the bridge over Lake Sumter. His golf cart was pulled over by a Sumter County sheriff’s deputy. The golf cart was not Street Legal, therefore it was not permitted on the busy roadway.
