Watch Out in Orange County!

There is a new crack down going on in Orange County! It is the failure to stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk law (s. 316.130 F.S.) and local law enforcement is watching for it!

Actually, They are doing a bit more...

Actually, they are setting you up. They have a plain clothes police officer standing at the ready to step out into the crosswalk as you approach. Once you are close, the undercover cop steps out and a marked unit is ready to pull you over if you do not hit your brakes.

Why is this happening...

Central Florida has the reputation of the most dangerous streets for pedestrians and the local governments have made it a priority to do something about it. Well, this is what they have come up with.  Is it entrapment? "But for" the actions of the plain clothes police officer the infraction would not have occurred - right?

The Cost

The fine for this ticket is $166. It is considered a moving violation and points will be assessed if you just pay the fine.
