Intersection: Sovereign Citizens And I-4 Ultimate
The I-4 Ultimate project is underway. Governor Rick Scott joined officials last week to break ground on the 21-mile upgrade. To talk more about the project, and the the toll lanes- which some call “Lexus Lanes” 90.7's Matthew Peddie speaks with I4 Ultimate Spokesperson David Parks and HNTB Engineer Kevin Hoeflich.
Later in the program, 90.7's Catherine Welch talks with University of Central Florida Deputy Police Chief Brett Meade about so called sovereign citizens. Earlier this month, Orange County deputies were involved in a shootout with a sovereign citizen. The FBI classifies them as domestic terrorists who believe they are above the law -- and their numbers are growing in Florida. Brett Meade explains how law enforcement deals with sovereign citizens in their efforts to protect the Central Florida community.
