After a wild spring break last year, Miami Beach has a new public service campaign that warns college students, "Enjoy your vacation. Don't leave on probation!" It's part of the city's $33,000 messaging campaign that some might interpret as an effort to discourage young people from visiting the urban island city during spring break.
