Sept 1, 2005 - Florida Highway Patrol Double Duty

Here's something you may not know. Many members of the Florida Highway Patrol have gone to Iraq as members of the Army, Marines, Coast Guard, Air National Guard and Military police. Currently there are 13 members of the Florida Highway Patrol in Iraq. These brave troopers are from all over Florida from Miami and Pinellas Park to Ocala, Arcadia, Pensacola, and Panama City.

A large group of Florida Highway Patrol Troopers have already served in Iraq and come home safe. We counted 31 troopers that went to Iraq and are home safe. This brings a few things to mind.

Don't Mess with The Florida Highway Patrol

Florida Highway Patrol Troopers are not your ordinary police. Sure they have serious looking uniforms and cars but it goes much deeper. If you have been subjected to the terrorism occurring in Iraq and fought against blood thirsty suicide bombers then pulling someone over for speeding is not a challenge. Many of our troopers are highly trained members of the United State Military.

The next time you get pulled over on a Florida highway keep it in perspective. The man or woman pulling you over may have just returned from a war zone. Don't give them any lip. Just hand over your license and registration and say "yes sir" or "yes mam" to show a little respect for those that are protecting us at home and around the world.

Labor Day Crackdown

This weekend the very highly trained Florida Highway Patrol will be out in force looking for drunk drivers. And be aware that they have lots of unmarked cars. Vehicles like SUVs and ordinary cars. Save yourself some trouble. If you are going to drink, do it at home or let a designated driver chauffeur you. Afterall, you don't have a chance against the FHP.
