Is your permanent residence FL?

If so, that would explain why you got ticket.

If it's not (you spend more than 6 months outside of FL) sounds like you could fight that.

This was years ago, I paid those tickets. I did permanently move.

I did end up moving back though, screw FL :-)

CT ain't any better! Taxes, taxes and more taxes, high cost of living, and lousy cold weather. What's not to like?

Paid for by my higher wages. The math (for me) showed an increase in QOL and overall income in CT as opposed to FL.

You and I might have a different idea of what "cold" is. Accepting the idea that my blood will "thin out" and get used to the heat was complete nonsense. My ideal temp is closer to 66F. Temps over 80 are pretty hot for me, and that's WITHOUT humidity added in. I will walk outside with a damn t-shirt and shorts in anything over 45F.

It took 5 years for me to figure it out I guess, but FL and states as warm as FL are not places I feel happy in. Also, the pizza sucks

Vehicle registration and insurance is a problem for many people with 2 homes. Seems every state has different rules and every insurance co. seems different also.

As an example, I tried to register a car in my home state. But you have to show proof of that state insurance to get it. Insurance co. said no to that state as the car spent more time in the state it was currently registered in. I then asked about the cars I use in Fla. for 6 months a year. Insurance co. said they definitely need to be insured in Fla. or I would be breaking the rules of my contract with them. Problem is that if I insure in Fla. my state registration will be taken away for not having insurance. If I would register in Fla. I would be breaking the law in my home state as soon as the cars are there for 30 days.

No way to be in the right unless you leave a car in Fla. with Fla. registration and insurance. Then have other vehicles in your home state with registration and insurance there.
Or do like many others are doing. Setup a Montana LLC. have all your vehicles owned by that entity. Rent them back for $1. No inspection and low insurance. Then register any trailers you have in Maine.

I have two vehicles titled, registered, and insured in FL (my official residence) and two titled, registered, and insured in Maryland (where I spend about 5 months out of the year). No problems except it's a PITA shopping for insurance. There is no way to have all vehicles put on the same account.

Not sure I get the LLC angle. Can you explain more? My insurer requires the vehicle be insured where it's stored. How would registering it in a Montana LLC (or Delaware for that matter) be of benefit? And then there's the niggling problem of tying umbrella liability to vehicle coverage which, coming full circle, has to be written where it's stored. Luckily my northeast agent is licensed in FL (and the carrier writes policies there too), so no problems with that other than cost. Higher in FL, of all things.
