stand up

Florida just passed a law aimed at squids/hooligans, or whatever you want to call them. There are three provisions to the law, but I can only remember two: it is illegal to stand up off the seat, and; it is illegal to have the tag in any position other than the original factory position and orientation. The fine is rather stout - $1000.00 for the first offense, with increasing fines and license suspensions for late offenses.
Obviously, no one expects these new laws to be used except against all the a**holes who love to stunt on city streets (like all the guys who congregate down south of Lake Okeechobee and run street drags), but who knows when somebody decides to get a little extra dough for his little town.
