Default 5,000 feet

Many people believe it is legal to use fireworks in unincorporated Tarrant County, but not too many people realize it is ILLEGAL TO USE FIREWORKS WITHIN 5,000 FEET OF THE FORT WORTH CITY LIMITS.

Last year 68 citations were issued, with the maximum penalty being $2,000.00. Ignorance of the law is no excuse, get educated. If you are caught using fireworks within 5,000 feet of the city limits, you will be considerably lighter in the wallet.

that may be true--but I don't understand legally how the city of FTW can make a law that actually controls the behavior of people who are not IN FTW when they break it
that sound unconstitutional to me...

Not only is it Illegal to shoot them off..it is Illegal to have them in your possession! Car trunk etc...! you Can't even transport them from one side of town to another unless you can find a route that takes you all the way around the incorporated city limit's of Fort Worth! Or you don't get caught!
