IS IT LEGAL FOR AN ADULT TO RIDE IN THE BACK OF A PICK UP TRUCK IN ALACHUA COUNTY?

This is a good question and one that I am often asked as an experienced Gainesville personal injury attorney, specializing in motor vehicle accidents that often involve trucks. Yes. According to Florida law, it is legal to ride in a tuck’s cargo area, if you are 18 years of age or older in any county in Florida.

I am local accident attorney Jeffrey Meldon and I strongly believe that public education is the first step in the prevention of and/or recovery from a serious accident. My office and I take pride in our work, and the results we get for our clients.
