We see it every day on the roads of the Sunshine State but we wanted to know is it legal in Florida to ride in the bed of a pickup truck?

The quick answer: Yes, in Florida it is legal to ride in the back of a pickup truck…however it’s dangerous and could result in injury. Think about it, the bed doesn’t have seats or seat belts (unless it’s one of those Subaru BRATs) and if an accident occurs, then whatever is in the bed will go flying around!

According to the law, the passenger in the bed of the pickup must be 18 years of age or older and MUST BE COMPLETELY SEATED in the bed of the pickup. Now when it comes to riding on the fender or standing on the running boards and hanging on to the side of the truck, that’s illegal.
