Spring break crackdown: New rules in Fort Lauderdale

But the handcuffs have not seemed to dampen the group’s spirits. A number of the bus ride of lawbreakers posed for the camera. A girl on the back row also showed off her handcuffs by the lifting of her arms, and flashed a big smile.

Although the crew seemed unfazed by the arrests, several on Twitter have a different point of view.

In response to the photo, one person tweeted, “And far too many think that it’s FUNNY. Nothing funny about breaking the law, Parents should not tolerate and these children should be ashamed.”

This year several popular spring break destinations – Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Panama City Beach, Orlando and Daytona have started to crack down on the violent and dangerous behaviour of school children engage in during the week drunk.

“We are changing the hours of drinking two hours earlier, the bars should be close to the two, no drinking on the beach, in March, no parking overnight on the rightaways, which are just a few of them,” Panama City Beach Mayor Mike Thomas told Fox News. “I know that arrests are down, and that we have a very fun spring break.”

“If you chose to act on, and chose not to follow our rules, you go to jail,” Thomas added.

The approach seems to work with 220 spring breakers arrested in Panama City Beach, with effect from 13 March.

The approach seems to work for the city. More than 220 spring breakers was arrested March 13, Metro reports.

Fort Lauderdale also issued stricter rules for the partygoers.

“It will not be tolerated. If that is what the kids want, they certainly should not be here,” the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce President Dan Lindblade told the Sun Sentinel. “The spring break days of the past, not anymore.”
