To provide I must sacrifice
To make the daily commutes of all South Florida drivers smoother, quicker and safer.
I live in Broward county and my daily commutes have taken me from my home in plantation to Downtown Miami to Boca Raton. One of the glaring issues that will help address traffic all across Florida in my eyes is very simple. These delays end up affecting ones mental fortitude, and emotional strength each and every day. to be able to make it on time for your job you typically have to leave your home 30 to 45 minutes earlier just to account for traffic, taking you away from people able to provide extra time for yourself and your family. A portion of the traffic does occur from accidents but a majority of the traffic is caused by the lack of lanes for the extended population to travel on at peak times. Exit lanes are minimum and cause back ups and delays for miles back because of the citizens fighting to get off the highway and the use of tolls have caused many people to sit in traffic for hours at a time before getting home while others pay $10 dollars to get a few hundred feet ahead of others (I95). What can be done is to get rid of all tolls and expand the exit lanes and make dedicated lanes of exit for each individual exit. expanding the exit lanes and making dedicated lanes for each exit will nullify the traffic that build up from people exiting and closing tolls all a steady stream of traffic to move. A simple flat rate tax Can address any lost monetary the county and state will need to maintain the highway.
