What's So Special about this SPECIALTY TAG...it saves money, prevents crime, and saves lives. For over 35 years, Florida PAL has been at the front lines preventing juvenile delinquency with over 40 chapters statewide. It has been said that it takes a village and positive role models are needed. In the State of Florida, you can be that positive role model by purchasing a PAL tag for your vehicle. BE A PAL; show your support. Whenever you are driving with our specialty tag on your car you are sending out a message. The message is one of concern for the social and academic development of Florida's youth.

Chat with the Florida PAL Alumni, Max Trapasso...Living His Dream

by Karen Fleming

"People sometimes believe success is a later-in-life thing that takes years to get to, and when you get there it's like sitting back in a reclining chair and counting the money that flows through the pipes in your house. But that's not how it works," Max said. "Success comes in stages and can happen at any time in your life."

"I consider myself to be successful now as I plan to be the first in my family to graduate college and I have a secure management job with the company I've wanted to work for since I was a kid. That is success for me, and success can be whatever you want it to be."
