    seriously, how do you let your car run out of gas? You know when you are low on fuel and you know you are going to have to refuel. Why not do it ahead of time? You can’t legislate stupidity.

    How old was this Villager? Another anchor baby that is unable to make their way? Probably on the phone or texting but obviously not paying attention. Glad they escaped injury.

        Why so negative. Maybe she is a relative here to look after an elderly family member. My guess is there are many so called active adults living in The Villages who are extremely irresponsible.

    If believe I saw the vehicle that was before it was rear ended. It was parked in the left east bound lane of 466 near the left hand turn lane for Morse Blvd (I was heading in the west bound direction).

    If that was the vehicle I saw, it should have pulled over to the right hand lane on what should be a “shoulder”, which would have also been dangerous. There are two entrances to county offices nearby also on the right.

    I can’t figure out, other than to save money, why the county and state of Florida builds high volume secondary roads with virtually no shoulders to use in case of emergencies. Fortunately, no one was injured.
