Another golf cart driver in the bike/walking lane almost hit me.

I was walking up Murieta Parkway and I saw an older woman in a golf cart coming down in the bike/pedestrian lane and assumed she'd get out of the lane as she got closer..she stayed in the lane and was going really fast..I finally screamed at her about 2 feet before she got to me and started to move toward the grass. She kept coming and swerved right before she was going to hit me though I could have touched the cart. She didn't stop as she flew by as if she had no problem she almost injured me severely. 

People!!! The bike/pedestrian lane only allows golfcarts when noone is using it for biking or walking/running..you must GET OUT OF THE LANE!! At the minimum, remember that people ALWAYS have the right away..this is becoming a serious issue since it is happening more and more, and I have to believe if its happening to me, its happening to others..

Bike lanes

Myrna, for whatever reason golf cart owners and their kids have NO IDEA what a "bike" lane is. News flash cart owners, it's for bicycles and pedestrians. I'm never surprised by carts in the bike lane! Stay on the road and obey the stop signs!
