3 Simple Steps to Alleviate Our Traffic Woes
1. Change laws for uninsured motorists
2. Enforce strict Passing on Left ONLY laws
3. Align traffic lights to flow with traffic
Congestion and accidents are the major cause of traffic in S FL. Removing vehicles from our roadways that are not properly insured could potentially cut congestion by 20-30%. Simple fact, if you don't have insurance you should not be on the road.
There is nothing more frustrating than cars weaving in and out of traffic, this is also a major accident cause. If we educate drivers by ticketing them for passing on right, and post more signs that state the LAW FOR SLOWER TRAFFIC TO KEEP RIGHT, we could have a better traffic flow.
I can't tell you how many times I drive down a road to stop at a red light and once the light turns green the next light several blocks away turns red, again and again. If these traffic lights would be regulated to traffic flow, we would be headed in the right direction for alleviating our traffic nightmares.
Drivers in Miami need to be re-educated. Sure we could add more mass transit, but there will still be drivers on the road regardless.
It is a shame that people have to have "uninsured motorist" policy on their insurance. Countless accidents caused by uninsured motorists and drivers leaving the scene. We should not have to pay extra for the few that take advantage of the system.
I know that if these simple steps were put into motion, driving would not be so much of a headache.
