During his time as a representative, Irv Slosberg passed legislation such as no trucks in the left two lanes on I-95, 24 hours a day; mandatory driver signals; and provided a surefire funding source for driver education by adding $5 to traffic citations. Other legislation he championed included mandatory seatbelts, first for minors and then for people of all ages; harsher penalties for repeat DUI offenders, including breathalyzers installed in cars to start the ignition; and he extended the statue of limitations against the exploitation of the elderly bill. Representative Slosberg brought in 24 million dollars of state funding for guardrails on Florida’s Turnpike and recently secured the installation of guardrails on State Road 80.

Irv Slosberg’s entire career is devoted to seniors, the people of Florida and the world who share our roadways in memory of his daughter, Dori.
