What are they doing down there. Have you other Canadians heard that Florida
now requires an International Drivers License in addition to your Canadian
Drivers License to drive in Florida.
It will cost you $25.00 plus photos and only lasts one year. This is so that
your Canadian license in English can be translated into English for the
locals to be able to read. I can drive in 49 US states with my Canadian
license but not Florida. This all comes into effect just before the spring
break when many Canadians take a trip to Florida.
Do they speak different English? Why translate English to English?
If that is the case, who cares, I can get an International one at my AMA
office. In my traveling days no one ever asked me to see my license
in States or overseas. I always had international one as well as my
Canadian one and US military one.

I got my international when I went to Austria this spring. Used to
have one back in the seventies that was "life long" - no expiry - but
I still needed to get my Zambian driver's licence. Canadian and
international combined was only good for something like 3 months and
did not allow me to own a vehicle.
Today's newspaper in Sarasota had a quote from one interviewed
legislator. He said "I hope I didn't vote for this."
Some day, rather than passing feel good bills the size of an
encyclopedia, they might try reading and understanding them first. The
result can only be more intelligible legislation.
