I am way too familiar with several cases where people were charged and
convicted with violating obscure laws clearly intended for another purpose
just for doing their jobs in a normal, reasonable way. Intel v. Schwartz (no
relation) is a great example.

It's quite possible (even likely, IMO) that when Florida makes it illegal to
lend your driver's license to any other person, it actually means precisely
that.
