Video: Apparently it’s okay to drive military tanks in neighborhoods in Florida
Quite the parade through the neighborhood
Residents in one South Florida neighborhood were treated to quite a sight over the weekend. It seems a local resident of the Palmetto Bay subdivision, south of Miami, decided to take his military tank for little spin up and down the main road.
According to a local news station the “parade” was a little startling. As it turns out tanks can be brought on the internet, and that seems to be what the resident has done. The tank is British.
“For the most part it’s unusual to say the very least and with the present state of politics, it’s concerning,” resident James Woodard told CBS4.
A reporter tried to contact the driver who lives on a gated property but got no comment. It seems that as long as the guns aren’t functional, and by all accounts they aren’t, a military tank is legal to own.
A code enforcement officer along with two vehicles from the local sheriff’s department were seen entering and leaving the property. Meanwhile the local government of Palmetto Bay is investigating to see if tanks are indeed allowed and is getting the county involved as it seems the tank’s driver ran over and damaged a curb.
