New Driving Law in Florida

A new law in Florida went into effect on July 1. This new law states that the music from your vehicle cannot be heard more than 25 ft. away from your vehicle. Police officers can pull drivers over if the music is “plainly audible.”

According to the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, “the officer need not determine the particular words or phrases being produced or the name of any song or artist producing the sound. The detection of a rhythmic bass reverberating type sound is sufficient to constitute a plainly audible sound.”

The law also states that sound can’t be louder than necessary for people in the car to hear near churches, schools, or hospitals. Drivers could be fined $114-116.
