A misguided motorist drove onto the multi-modal path Tuesday afternoon near the Village of Pinellas gate.

At about 1 p.m., Sandra Randell of the Village of LaBelle was riding in a rented four-seater golf cart “showing our visitors the delights of The Villages.”

That’s when a car had crossed the median ahead of the gate arms and attempted to drive up the cart path before being stopped, she said.

Randell was able to snap a photo of the car on the multi-modal path.
