Online PR News – 28-September-2011 – – Snowbirds flying south for the winter aren’t the only things on the rise this year in Florida. The state’s use of alternative vehicles is burgeoning a new type of transportation.

Registered low-speed vehicles in Palm Beach County and Broward Beach County in South Florida increased 19 percent and 31 percent from 2009, respectively, with more than 300 vehicles in these areas. On a state level, there were more than 6,271 golf carts registered in 2010, according to a recent article on SunSentinel.com.

Families are especially taking to purchasing low-speed electric vehicles and street legal golf carts for quick neighborhood errands or taking their kids to school. With the initial savings from the 10 percent tax credit and the long-term savings of fuel costs and wear and tear, it makes sense in this unsteady economy.

Florida is also home to one of the retail leaders in the low speed vehicle industry. Road Rat Motors offers a full line of electric vehicles for sale that will help you get from point A to point B without costing you a fortune. With its low speed vehicles, you no longer need to spend $50 a week filling up your gas task. Road Rat Motors' street golf carts and low speed vehicles cost as little as 1 cent per mile to operate, compared to the 43 cents per mile it takes to operate your typical full-size vehicle.
