Stefan commented on To provide I must sacrifice

Improvement on public transportation would be good. We would need more hours of operations for bus routes and more buses in service. the train is good idea and we do have a metro that run from Miami Dade county to west palm but the frequency of travel is not that great. I am game for opening up more lanes on the highway and removing tolls from our biggest commuted highways and charge a flat rate from the county to maintain the highway. or improvement of public transportation because the time intervals between stops are not consistent enough.

Hello Katie, yes that is an option that has been available to me. Being able to work at home has its pros but nothing in my opinion beats working from the office because of the access to everyone in your company and the resources available on site. Even if a portion of people happened to work from home to lower the traffic that still does not solve the problem. Traffic congestion begins at 7:30 am till 10 Am and 4pm to 8pm Monday through Friday. the lack of accessible roads, clogged streets and highways cause a trickle down affect to also our local roads. most of our roads are bottle necked even if you want to make a simple commute across the city during those times. It doesn't help either that the highways are always under constant repairs and renovations. I believe increasing the amount of lanes on the highways will loosen up traffic flow and also will decrease the snails pace people deal with as the exit lanes clear as the light lets people off to their destination. Realistically the issues probably lays in poor city planning or better yet the city outgrowing its original road ways. Renovating of roadways and proper maintenance will allow a better commute for most travelers. Also more 'Smart" traffic lights that monitor traffic flow would help manage time management. If the lights are more synced and integrated with real time traffic updates that would help facilitate the movement through the county and all of South Florida. Automation and Renovation would be my biggest additions.
