Fla. Car Dealership Facing Fines over American Flag Banners
A Florida car dealership may be forced to pay up for its display of patriotism.
Mike Wangle, general manager of a Kia car dealership in West Palm Beach, Fla., is facing fines of up to $1,000 per day for flying six American flag banners, WPTV reported.
The banners violate a code that prohibits banners and signs made from lightweight fabric or plastic.
Palm Beach County says they must come down by the Fourth of July or the Kia dealership will be fined.
“We're just trying to show our patriotism,” Wangle told WPTV.
Wangle said that the banners are staying put until July 5 – even if it means he has to pay.
