These photos are from the early days of our FLOW (Florida Licensing On Wheels) mobile program. These buses were refurbished in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s by HSMV and sent out into communities to provide convenient motor services. The photos are before and after shots showing the great job our staff did to give these buses new life. Today, the FLOW mobile program has 11 modern, fully-equipped units across the state serving the public

This photo album is from an alcohol related traffic accident demonstration presented to Amelia County High School Juniors and Seniors. 
Some of the photos are graphic. The demonstration is as close to reality that our emergency responders, friends and families face every day. If it made an impact to just one person, it is worth it. Everyone thinks that it can’t / wont happen to them. But they are wrong. 


To all the HS graduates: Have a safe summer, don’t drink & drive.

We are reminding everyone to take additional steps to ensure that no child is left unattended in a vehicle this summer. This year, there have been two reported cases in Florida of children dying of heatstroke after being left in cars. Don’t be distracted when leaving your vehicle and take a second look in the back seat to ensure a child is not left behind.
