Florida is among a small handful of states where you can be ticketed for driving too slow. The state's “Move Over Law” requires drivers to move to the left lane when passing emergency vehicles or police that are stopped on the side of the roadway. Good to know: Unless you're in a funeral procession, Florida bans using hazard lights while the vehicle is moving. Among the more odd laws still on the books are those proclaiming it illegal to drive over graves or park within intersections.
