Replica bull testicle provision removed from highway safety bill

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida trucks have avoided castration.

A provision in a highway safety bill that would have banned drivers from attaching replica bull testicles to their rear bumpers was snipped from the legislation.

The bill will now go to Governor Crist's desk.

Republican Senator Carey Baker had sponsored the amendment that would have allowed police to give drivers a 60 dollar ticket for displaying the dangling decorations.

The House did not have the amendment in its version of the bill.

Senators had engaged in a somewhat heated debate over the issue two weeks ago.
