I am almost never venture out in rush hour but this year I tack on an extra 1/2 hour to get anywhere during anytime of the day. And I mean 5 or 6 miles.
I started listening to classical music in the car to remain calm. While stopped I play Words with Friends on my phone. I suspect some of those friends cheat.
Last night there was construction on 95 and it took about an hour and a half to get home from Coral Gables...a 45 minute ride usually. WHY WHY WHY do they do all the construction at the height of the season? I spent 4 hours in traffic all day yesterday and I doubt I drove more than 50 miles. Do I go to Miami Beach anymore? No. Well, that is because of parking too. I go to Homestead on weekends only. I would never hit the shows at the Deering Estate - too long a drive with traffic. I only go as far as the Arsht Center and I won't go anymore once the Malaysian Resorts World development gets underway. I can't wait till Wet Dream Miami starts development.
I had a car in New York City and it was never as bad as here. Of course, I wasn't opposed to driving on the sidewalk. I did walk or take subways so it wasn't a problem getting anywhere. Tell us about your traffic woes. Are you becoming more of a no-go person because of the thought of traffic? Do you agree that traffic is worse than ever this year?
