Have a Safe Holiday by Driving Sober

distractedDecember is considered one of the most dangerous times of the year for impaired driving. To combat impaired driving, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles along with state officials are ramping up patrols as well as spearheading educational campaigns in an effort to make Florida’s roadways less dangerous for drivers this month.

Between December 23, 2016 to January 2, 2017, close to 200 crashes on Florida’s roadways involved drugs or alcohol and over thirty of those crashes resulted in fatalities per state officials. Though crashes related to alcohol have declined since 2014, those involving drugs have increased by fifty percent.

Many of the steps you can take to drive safer this month are easy to follow and have been well-discussed before:

Make sure you always driver sober. If you’ve been drinking, have a designated driver take you home or use a ridesharing service. AAA Tow to Go is also another option depending on where you live.

Drive within the speed limits. As New Year’s approaches, there will be a higher chance of speeding drivers. No matter where you go in Florida, the speed limit will never rise above 70 mph. Obey it.

Concentrate on driving. In other words, wait until you’ve safely arrived at your destination before snapping the selfie or posting the Facebook status.

Miami-Dade police detective accused of stealing from drivers during traffic stops

Miami-Dade police William Kostopoulos was accused of making three traffic stops in order to steal driver’s money and other property. He was indicted on charges of using his law enforcement authority to violate motorists’ civil rights, in addition to make misleading statements to prevent authorities from finding out about the alleged crimes.

Miami-Dade police Sgt. John Barrow said Kostopoulos, a 17-year veteran, is on paid leave. Also, J.D Patterson, Miami-Dade Police Director, explained “to effectively carry out our sworn duty to protect the physical safety and the constitutionally granted rights of our residents, law enforcement officers need the trust and confidence of the community.”

At the moment the case is being investigated with an alliance made by the FBI with the Homestead Police Department. This situation negatively impacts the public opinion about this profession, making the job of the officers more difficult.

Brace Yourself For Severe Traffic This Weekend

To no one’s surprise, Miami is one of the country’s most traffic-ridden cities, a testament to its fast population growth and vibrant community life. This weekend alone is a strong reminder of how this energetic city can catch drivers off-guard with its many events.

First there is the Miami Open, one of the biggest tennis tournaments in the world. With thousands of spectators congregating at Key Biscayne, many cars will be heading south on I-95 and north on U.S. 1 to get to the Rickenbacker Causeway leading to the island. So unless you are a tennis fan, you may want to avoid driving on these areas.

Then there is Ultra, one of the world’s most popular electronic music events, which is significantly re-routing traffic in the downtown area: until 6 a.m. Monday, Biscayne Boulevard is northbound-only between SE First and NE Fourth Streets, while southbound Biscayne Boulevard traffic is rerouted west at NE Fourth, towards NE Second Avenue. Even the side streets are sure to get full as people try to pile into the comparatively few lanes that remain.

Finally, there is the monthly ritual of Critical Mass, where a group of cyclists from across the city will meet at Government Center downtown at 6:45 p.m. to begin their ride west. The group will move through Little Havana along Flagler Street, then go south on NW 22nd Avenue, continuing west on Eight Street towards West Miami. From there the ride heads back north to Flagler and rides east all the way back to downtown.

In short, brace yourself for a lot of traffic. Most importantly, be careful out there – to yourself and your fellow drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians.
