Florida Gators fast on the field and in their cars

GAINESVILLE – Before a loss to Alabama on Dec. 5, the Florida Gators were racing to a national title.

Florida has had well-publicized arrests in recent months stemming from traffic charges – including Carlos Dunlap’s DUI charge on Dec. 1 — but those incidents comprise a small fraction of a team-wide 251 traffic citations in Alachua County, according to Orlando Sentinel research.
These charges range from speeding tickets to numerous cases of driving with a suspended or revoked license, typically a second-degree misdemeanor or, for repeat offenders, a felony.
