New Florida Law Concerning Vertical License Tag
Color me confused! Saw reference to this in the Sept AMA magazine. Among about a 100 other changes/additions to the Florida traffic laws House Bill 1223 says this;
" With respect to license tags affixed vertically to a motorcycle or moped, the bill removes the requirement that such vehicles must maintain a prepaid account and a transponder; however, the owner or operator must pay any required toll by whatever means available."
So, what does this mean, If I display my tag vertically and I don't have transponder and there's no tool booth that takes cash what do I do. I suppose the camera will take my photo and then the trans Dept will send me a letter telling me that I owe them the cost of the toll plus some ridiculous processing fee. So OK, however seems to me that there is an implication here that if I display my tag horizontally that I MUST maintain a prepaid transponder or I'll not only have to pay the fee by mail but may be subject to a fine! Anybody out there know what the real deal is?
