Don’t Parade on That Rain 0

(Link fixed.)

The Orlando Sentinel reports (emphasis added), with a refreshing breath of candor:

If you’re one of many drivers who has switched on your car’s hazard lights while negotiating heavy rain, guess what: You’ve broken the law.

But it’s not too likely you’re going to get a ticket for it.

Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Mark Wysocky said the law is probably not very frequently enforced, noting that both the officer and driver would get “soaked” if a citation was issued in the pouring rain.

Drivers’ flashing four-ways when there is no good reason irritates the heck out of me.

(The rationale for the law is to keep drivers from confusing ordinary vehicles with police cars and ambulances.)
