Driving in Florida
Florida law requires you to turn on your car headlights whenever there is any restriction to visibility while driving. This includes rain, fog, smoke, as well as at dawn and dusk. You may find that Florida drivers are impatient and tend to speed up to "beat a yellow light" rather than prepare to stop. Consequently, many drivers run red lights and you become the victim. Take an extra second to be sure the oncoming traffic is stopping before you enter an intersection.
Another major concern in Central Florida is Hurricane Season, from June to November. Call ahead if you are arriving at Jacksonville and a hurricane is predicted to hit this area. Watch the Weather channel and contact your sponsor if the Battalion may be evacuated and the surrounding roads will be congested with people leaving the area. Good website is: www.fema.gov for weather updates.
