Take to the Streets! In Golf Carts?

As can be read HERE, the small town of Sullivan, Illinois looks like it's going to pass an ordinance that will make it kosher to drive your golf cart around town instead of using a car.

Although I found this strange initially, on second thought this is done in retirement communities and towns in Florida and Arizona where golf carts act as postmodern chariots for the senior set. 

If one has a golf cart and wants to use it for errands, this sounds like a good deal. But I wonder how much money people will spend on them (pimp my cart) to quit using gas-powered vehicles. It's a loss initially, but such a system (golf cart for errands around town, big vehicle for longer trips) is beneficial for the environment but would take some years to break even on an investment.
