The Government of Florida has announced the Florida Highway Patrol will not enforce a new law requiring Canadians to have an international driving permit, the Canadian Automobile Association says.
"We are grateful that the state of Florida has responded to pressure from CAA and thousands of concerned Canadians on this issue," CAA said after issuing a news release earlier in the day saying Florida highway police were enforcing a new law requiring Canadians to have an international driving permit in the southern state.
CAA said it is still seeking clarity from the state on whether this applies to all the over 400 law-enforcement agencies that exist in Florida.
