JACKSONVILLE, Fla.- It is a new year in the Sunshine State and on Florida's roadways there are some new laws in effect.
To start, say you want to flash your headlights to warn other drivers about nearby police.
"Just to alert," said Kim Rolfe, of Jacksonville. "It's just a courtesy to let other driver's know 'Hey, you're about to pass a cop.'"
Before the new year, that was illegal in Florida.
"I did not know that that was illegal!" Rolfe shouted with a laugh. "I thought I was just doing something nice for my fellow drivers!"
As of January 1, 2013, it's now legal, after the state legislature cleared up the law.
"So, it could be a good law to aide in safety," William Lee, of St. Augustine, said Tuesday morning. "So, I think it's good."
If you're ever in an accident, there's another law you should know about. It's about the personal injury protection (PIP) portion of your Florida policy.
