5/2 -- 2:15pm -- TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) --

State Sen. Oscar Braynon likes fresh air and loud music when he's driving. The freshman senator from Miami found enough support from
colleagues to defeat a proposal that would have toughened penalties
for drivers who have their audio systems turned up to the max and their windows down while driving. The bill was defeated in the Senate on a 20-16 vote.

Sen. Arthenia Joyner, D-Tampa, said during debate that it's not right for lawmakers to try and "fix everything we don't like."

The measure was sponsored by Sen. Steve Oelrich, R-Gainesville, a former sheriff.
