I-4, EXIT 108s onramp I-4S: To Valdez, Deltona FL
Ok Road Trippers, it is time for a Road Test. Now listen to the Fast Facts!
There are some ridiculous laws on the books in the state of Florida. We did some research and found some of the silliest. Many of these laws are only in effect in certain cities. So for example, selling fruit in one city is all right but you could spend hard time if you cross the county line. Up in Destin, Florida please don't set off any torpedoes. It's illegal there. Not sure about the rest of the state, but they have a problem with torpedoes in Destin. Must be a lot of large alligators or something.
Also Good to know: in all of Florida, men are not allowed in public wearing a strapless dress. As long as you've got straps of some sort, you're cool.
Also, in Destin, it is illegal for an ice-cream man to sell ice cream in a cemetery. But what’s really weird, in Hialeah, strolling or ambling is a misdemeanor.
Still all that’s nothing compared to selling certain fruits in Miami. In Miami, you could face up to 30 days in jail for selling oranges on the sidewalk. And don't even think about showering naked! It's an actionable offense. Maybe the cops perp walk you with your handcuffs in front....
Raincoats must be popular round here. And as if people do not have enough outdoor activities to entertain them, in Daytona Beach, you're banned from molesting trash cans.
In Key West, don't molest the chickens! They're a protected species. But they need to hear that in Key West.
Finally, here is one that does make sense. In the state of Florida, it's illegal to have physical relations with a porcupine. Ouch!
But maybe you can have relations with a chicken outside of Key West? The State Law is not clear on that issue.
Finally, in case you are riding down the Interstate on Jumbo, know this: When you tie it to a parking meter, your elephant gets charged just the same as your car would.
Now for the Road Test. How many days do you get in jail for selling Grapefruits in Miami? You have three seconds. 3…2…and 1. The answer is no time. You get no time in jail. That’s because it is only illegal to sell Oranges. Now go park your elephant and feed the meter. And when you visit upcoming Deltona, no romancing porcupines. Pervert!
