People up North don't know unless they've lived in Flordia for a while or actually even visited. Police will arrest you for walking 2 blocks from a bar to your home even if you're not staggering or causing trouble. The motto is, "you go to Florida (Daytona especially) on vacation, leave on probation, and come back on violation." And if you're arrested wrongly, you are on a kind of probation called pre-trial release even if you're innocent, basically, so that they can put you in jail if you have pot in your system, etc, even though the original charges were dropped. This is well known by those who've lived there for a bit. And that's why springbreakers go now to the carribbean. Daytona alone has tons of rapes at spring break which are not publicized. So if you ever get a ticket, etc, do not ignore it, they will expedite you even as far away as maine and minnesota. Most of the people who lived there were transient and on crack, and most since I've left back to PA are either dead or in jail. Really!
