Flashers in Florida

While driving in a thunderstorm on Saturday here in Florida, we noticed SEVERAL cars with their emergency hazards (flashers) on and it made me laugh (and also call them names as I drove.)

From the Florida Highway Patrol Website: "Driving with hazard lights on is technically illegal in Florida. According to the statute, only vehicles that are disabled or lawfully stopped can have hazard lights in use."

If you're in Florida, STOP IT!! Just learn to drive in the rain, for Pete's sake. I don't know the rules in other states, but in Florida, it's a no-no.

Also, we'll make fun of you and call you an old fart, or something similar.

Hear, hear! I've been railing about this for years, now. If you have your flashers going, I assume you're stopped on the side of the road. If you're NOT, then that throws off everything!
