PASCO COUNTY, Fla. — When it comes to speeding in Pasco County, yabba dabba don’t do it.
That’s the message the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office delivered to residents recently after pulling over and issuing a citation for speeding to Don Swartz of Wesley Chapel, who was dressed as Fred Flintstone and driving the iconic footmobile, the office revealed in a Facebook post.
The citation was a joke reminding people to drive slower on Pasco County roadways.
Swartz decorated his Smart car to match the cartoon family’s main form of transportation. Pasco deputies “pulled over Mr. Flintstone” on Nov. 4 in the Meadow Bedrock Pointe Subdivision in Wesley Chapel, the post stated.
Pasco’s efforts to reach out to the public didn’t fall on deaf ears, as the Stone Age post received more than 2,000 reactions and was shared nearly 800 times.
