Staff Reports


Monday, Governor Ron DeSantis signed CS/HB 611 — Motor Vehicle Racing into law.


The bill summary states that The bill allows an officer to warrantlessly arrest and take a person into custody if the officer has probable cause to believe he or she committed a violation of s. 316.191(2), F.S., which prohibits any form of participation in motor vehicle racing. It removes the requirement that an officer either witness the offense and arrest immediately or in fresh pursuit, or secure an arrest warrant.
