Took a little researching. F.S.S. 316. 2085 used to have 6 subsections. It now has 7 subsections with these new changes. They changed or inserted, if you will, a newsubsection 2 include that motorcycles must stay on two wheels and the rider must have one leg on each side of the bike blah blah. This was one of the new added sections along with changing the wordage on how the license tag must be displayed which is subsection 3.

So bottomline, my law book should be correct and its a moving violation as stated above.
Do they give you guys classes or hand outs or something to keep everyone updated on new laws or refreshers on existing laws?
Yes we get updates, I had to dig back through all of them. Any gov't agency is real good at killing trees. But its like everything you cant remember all the laws and I do very little traffic enforcement, simply because I have bigger issues where I work than traffic.. And yes I would hope most Lawmen use some common sense, but like I have said attitude has a lot to do with it also....
