Unregistered Vehicle & Trailer Exception

As an update to this post, Where Rules Of The Road Are Not, there is an exception, a ‘seasonal’ exception to who can drive unregistered motor vehicles and trailers on Florida’s public highways. Call it a carve-out for BIG DELIVERY if you wish, because it only applies to delivery services that employ 10,000 employees or more in the State of Florida.

As far as I can tell, there is no exception for landscapers during the peak growing season.

Title XXIII Chapter 316, Florida Motor Vehicle Statute

That such a statute exists came as a surprise to me, as I’m sure it is to you. A surprise to me because it contradicts what both the Pensacola Police dispatcher and Traffic department had said weeks earlier.

A special ‘thank you’ to Pensacola Police Officer M. Dupois. She took the time to reference the above statue. The vehicle pictured in the above referenced post does show a discrepancy with the statue however:

Seasonal delivery personnel may pull a trailer from any of these vehicles.

(c)All vehicles specified in this subsection must be:

1.Marked in a conspicuous manner with the name of the delivery service.

But why be picky with “Santa” on a 4-wheeler?
