Santo Trafficante Jr. was a notorious bad driver. He was very effective at detecting and surveilling law enforcement vehicles. He used to drive 45 mph down the Florida interstate which made it tough to stay behind him without being noticed. He also made unexpected U-turns over the median at a moment’s notice.

This strip was inspired by an excerpt from true crime author Scott Dietche’s book, The Silent Don: The Criminal Underworld of Santo Trafficante Jr.

The life and ruthless times of one of America’s most powerful and feared mob bosses. With a criminal empire that stretched from the Gulf Coast throughout the Caribbean, Trafficante was linked to drug trafficking, plots to kill Fidel Castro, and the assassination of JFK.
