    State Law Vs. Federal

    Some people seem to be surprises that Federal and state laws do not coincide in all cases.

    I watched a report a while ago from a local news station that Hummer's are in essence illegal in florida due to there width. They exceed the state law requirements by an inch and a half or so. So owners could be ticketed. Judges could recommend to buy a new one; and cops can write tickets. Its conflicts like these that happen when you have federal, state, city, county and even legally enforceable HOA's laws that each try's to cover every aspect of your life. there tends to be overlaps and conflicts in them.
