  1. When tying your elephant to a parking meter, you must still pay the fees. Florida doesn’t care whether you drive a sedan, SUV, or an elephant, as long as you pay for the meter. Parking fees are very serious in the Sunshine State.
  2. If you steal a horse, you face the death penalty. We all know that stealing a car can lead to a five year prison sentence and $5,000. However, who knew that stealing a horse would lead to much more extreme consequences.
  3. It is illegal to drive over graves in a cemetery. While off-roading and four-wheeling are exciting activities, we suggest avoiding the cemetery while on your adventures.
  4. In Sarasota, hitting a pedestrian will cost you $78. While we hope you aren’t going around hitting pedestrians, this fine will cost more than a following too closely fine.
  5. You can get a ticket for driving too slowly. Although we often see getting tickets for driving too fast, you can also get a ticket for driving too slowly. If you are driving slower than the flow of traffic, this can endanger other drivers as it blocks the flow of traffic.
