2011 Florida Statutes

F.S. 479.28
479.28 Rest area information panel or device program.
(1) The department shall implement a rest area information panel or device program in the rest areas along the interstate highway system and the federal-aid primary highway system to present information in the specific interest of the traveling public and to promote tourist-oriented businesses.
(2)(a) A rest area information panel shall be designed to accommodate the names, locations, and short messages regarding numerous businesses. The messages displayed on an information panel shall not be visible from the main-traveled way.
(b) A rest area information device may be electronic and experimental in nature and provide travelers freedom of choice. Such a device may provide a traveler more detailed and selected information regarding tourist-oriented businesses than would be available on a rest area information panel.
(3) The department may contract with private persons for the construction, erection, and maintenance of the rest area information panels or devices. The compensation of the contractors shall be derived solely from the reasonable fees which the contractors are permitted to charge participating businesses. The department shall receive from the contractors sufficient revenues to cover the cost of administering the program. 21, 26, ch. 84-227; s. 4, ch. 91-429.
