As the rainy season approaches Florida Peninsula Insurance Company wants to keep you informed and safe.  Did you know driving with your hazards is illegal? As Floridians, we see this most during the rainy season, when the rain is coming down hard and visibility is low, but it is the topic of many debates between frustrated drivers and those who do not know the law. 

Let’s set the record straight: according to WPTV, the only time when Florida drivers are allowed to use their hazards when the vehicle is in motion is during a funeral procession. Although the law is not strictly enforced, according to the Sun-Sentinel, a violator of the law can be charged with a $115 ticket. 

Bottom line: If it is raining too hard and you can’t see, you may want to just pull over until the weather clears.
