TO the Florida Highway Patrol,

This is a letter regarding my experience with Trooper Bonilla while I was in Orlando. I am from upstate NY and this is my first visit to Florida. On 8-28 I was at an intersection and needed to reverse direction so I made a U-Turn when I had the green arrow. Upon completion of my turn, I was immediately pulled over by Trooper Bonilla. I did not know what I had done. She pointed to the large sign that said "NO U-Turn". For the life of me I did not see it. I expected the worst from the Trooper as I was from the North and have always been told that watch out for troopers in the South as I have NY plates and they will throw the book at you. Trooper Bonilla put that myth to rest. She was the most professional, polite and understanding person that I have met in law enforcement. She let me off with a warning, when she could have cited me. I came away from my interaction with Trooper Bonilla with a different understanding. She is an asset to the the Florida Highway Patrol.

Sincerely ,

Eric Bloomfield
