Loud music a problem?

By | Leave a Comment



The Florida Supreme Court yesterday found a statue intending to ban loud music in a vehicle unconstitutional. The statute had provided that if music was heard from a distance of 25 feet away, the driver of the car could be pulled over and given a traffic ticket. However, in many situations, the ticket would only be the beginning. After the stop for loud music law enforcement often proceed to conduct unrelated investigations such as the possible presence of drugs/weapons etc. The Court found the statute unconstitutional as a violation of a person’s right to freedom of expression.
