What a brilliantly stupid thing to do if you want to catch dangerous vehicles on the road or drugs or whatever!
I doubt many drug runners or gun runners read the news in the days before they traffic, to make sure they will have a clean run.
Florida, then into Georgia (Georgia being a main hub in the US for drug traffickers) is a main thoroughfair from the open coastline. The coastguard
can only prevent so much incoming drug traffic. The rest is up to road warriors.
Also, with the weather changing, and spring break coming, expect a lot more of this. They are trying to keep the roads safe, but unfortunately, in the
name of the almighty dollar, some innocent folks may get caught in the net.
Not saying it is right or wrong, it is what it is. If you are a casual user of recreational goods, keep it out of your car.
Otherwise, your car should be roadworthy to begin with.
