Would a Tips Only Golf Cart Taxi be Legal in Decatur?

Sure as hell isn't in Austin.

There's a great story over at Libertarian News about the trials and tribulations of  Chris Nielsen , owner of Electric Cab of Austin and his ongoing battle with city officials and police to operate a nifty business involving electric golf carts for taxi services.

Would this concept work in Decatur?

Imagine being able to step out of  Twains and get a lift down to the square for the courtesy of a tip. Imagine doing that in a  super cool electric golfcart that you don't have to park or maintain. Imagine to reduction in traffic on those busy Friday and Saturday nights, imagine no exhaust fumes and relish the "buggy" feel these four wheel wonders provide.

It's exactly the kind of thing I'd like to see in Decatur. Hopefully, the taxi lobby isn't as entrenched here as it evidently is in Austin and there's some room for our very own Electric Cab of Decatur.

Golf Carts Rule!
