No inspections of any kind at all here. One of only two things that doesn't suck about this state and I forgot what the other one was.

Ditto Florida. I was really surprised that when I brought my car into the state and registered it, they didn't so much as look at it, much less verify that the brakes and lights worked.

That being said, I despise Florida and can't wait to move back out to So Cal.

What's Florida missing beside lots of signs in Spanish and In-N-Out burger?

Well, it's both what it's missing, and what it's got.

What we have is oppressive heat & humidity. More insects per cubic foot than 'Nam. Old people and rednecks who can't drive and don't understand the concept of slower traffic keep right. More LEOs per capita than East Berlin, and they've all got nothing better do than run speed traps. Roads that are straighter and flatter than anything you can imagine and yet still have 30-40 MPH speed limits.

What we are missing is diversity of terrain- mountains, seven different kinds of desert, that sort of thing. Here, it's all just a continuous mix of swamp & heavy woods. We're missing serious race shops. We're missing business and industry in general. We're missing Palomar Mountain and the canyons of Julian. We're missing fish tacos and Fry's.

Swap what?

I don't know what I would do if they enacted **** like that in Florida. Probably hurry up and sell my car before the regulations took place and purchase a Honda Fit or some other reasonable car.

Florida gets invaded annually with slutty college chicks on spring break. This is essentially a second Christmas. Quit your bitchin'.
