Re: Many cruisers with documented vessels can not enter FL legally.
how about cars on florida highways ? i was going to drive there in april. will they be giving you a fine for being on their roads without a permit next ? i guess they don't want tourists.
Yes, they will give you a fine if you do not have a valid current registration from another state or country. I really believe that Florida does like tourists coming here. The state does a pretty good job of highway maintenance and beautification of highways and byways. The state contends with a large number of homeless people, undocumented immigrants and derelict boats, among the usual list of state-supported benefits. For tourists staying in the coastal areas, they can take comfort in the fact that Florida has very rigid building codes and contractor licensing requirements...the result being secure hotel and hi-rise structures. (Of course, other states do also.)
So come on down in April and enjoy the weather. Some of the beaches are terribly eroded from the passage of Hurricane Sandy and Uncle Sam has declined to provide the beachside communities any assistance for renourishment of beaches.
