Florida Driver's License Law May Violate Geneva Convention


Florida Driver's License Law May Violate Geneva Convention

As previously reported by HuffPost Travel Canada, the Florida Highway Patrol was bombarded with calls Thursday after Canadian media reported on the new requirements, which angered snowbirds who have never before had to buy Anquan Boldin 49ers Jersey an international drivers license to tool around Florida.


It turns out that the law, which Toronto's Globe and Mail called "sloppy," may also run afoul of a section of the Geneva Convention rules that requires signee countries to accept other countries' driver's licenses.


"No North American jurisdiction Authentic Torrey Smith Jersey has ever asked for an IDP before from another North American jurisdiction. This is a Anquan Boldin Jersey first," said Canadian Automobile Association spokesman Ian Jack.


Thursday FHP issued a statement:


It Reggie Bush Jersey has come to the Department's attention that this requirement may violate the Geneva Convention on Road Torrey Smith Jersey Traffic (1949), an international treaty to which the United States is a signatory. Treaties to which the United States is a party preempt state Torrey Smith 49ers Jersey laws in Authentic Reggie Bush Jersey conflict with them.


The agency also pledged troopers will not enforce the law until the Florida legislature can re visit it Reggie Bush 49ers Jersey when session starts in March.


This isn't the only piece of 2012 legislation already being challenged.


Rep. Maria Sachs recently sponsored Authentic Anquan Boldin Jersey a bill that would reinstate a ban lifted by her opponent Ellyn Bogdanoff, whose 2012 agriculture bill made it once again legal to dye animals.
