I have seen too many skilled drivers nearly total their cars hitting said objects (including drain grates). One of the things I never liked about the Orlando Convention Ctr is the poles and curbs with the faster cars/carts if they get out of the groove. A nationally top competitive driver lost control 2 years ago trying to avoid a final cone and slid into a curb on the outer edge. Fortunately he was able to get it fixed and trade it in before it was paid off. Ouch. He paid for the repair out of pocket.

His take away was: "Next time I'll just hit the cone."
