Not so fast.
Under a Florida law that took effect this month, drivers will be
hit with fines of more than $1,000 if they get busted for going 50
mph over the speed limit.
And for motorcyclists, there are additional new rules, including a ban on lifting their front wheel off the pavement, also known as "popping wheelies."
If drivers get caught going more than 50 mph over the limit a second time, they will have to pay more than $2,500 and lose their license for a year.
Drivers will have to pay $5,000 for a third offense and forfeit their license for 10 years.
Previously, the harshest penalty was $250 for exceeding the speed limit by more than 30 mph.
This penalty is still in effect.
