Speeders Could Lose Their Vehicles, Under Proposed Legislation

March 13th, 2008 by flanews

Proposed legislation could cost Florida drivers their vehicles, if theyre caught speeding three times. The original bill would have allowed law enforcement officers to confiscate motorcycles from drives who where caught driving faster than one hundred miles per hour. The legislation was amended this morning. Now the bill would allow the confiscation of all vehicle if their owners were caught driving more than 50 miles an hour over the speed limit three times. Motorcycle enthusiasts welcome the change, because they say the former bill discriminated against bikers.

I think its a good bill. Its a problem obviously in specifically in South Florida, thats where the problem seems to be the worst, and we want to help the law enforcement take care of the problem, said Winn Peeples representing the Florida Motorcycle Dealer Association.

The bill also increases penalties for motorcyclists who pop wheelies on Floridas Highways.
