What The Honk: The enigmatic mind of a Florida driver

Trooper Steve discerns the improper from the inconsiderate

ORLANDO, Fla. – With this cold front moving through, I am sure it will motivate some honks out there, so keep your eye out for them.

Today, I have these for you...

You somehow found a worse way to tailgate. (Copyright 2022 by WKMG ClickOrlando - All rights reserved.)

I shouldn’t be surprised by the things we see in downtown Orlando, but then again, I’m not.

This is a disaster waiting to happen and unfortunately, if a crash occurs, the injuries would be pretty catastrophic. This is just plain stupid behavior. Riding on the exterior of a vehicle is not only extremely illegal, but very dangerous. What a dummy.

A small vehicle, yes, but it still has twice too many wheels for the bike lane. (Copyright 2022 by WKMG ClickOrlando - All rights reserved.)

Now, I understand people who drive extremely small vehicles usually do that with intention, but you must remember that you’re still driving a four-wheeled vehicle, and although your vehicle may fit in certain places, it is still extremely dangerous to be there.

Yes, the Yaris fits jin this lane perfectly fine, but it is 100% designated for bicycles. Looks like we have a little bit of a confused identity here.

This is relatively mild compared to the rest of this week's honks, isn't it? (Copyright 2022 by WKMG ClickOrlando - All rights reserved.)

You all know I have an issue with people who can’t park.

How do you walk away from this and think it’s OK? You’re still blocking the thruway in the parking lot and you’re taking up two travel lanes.

Out-of-state plate, but definitely parking with a Florida driver’s mind.
