History[edit]

Rest area security concerns[edit]

In 1993, a British tourist was killed at the Jefferson County Rest Area in a botched burglary by teens.[4][5] As a result, Florida rest stops were either patrolled or closed for at least two years when lawmakers approved cut-backs.[6] A number of rest areas are currently regularly patrolled at night by armed security, often private, due to a resurgence in rest area-related violent crime.[7]
