Are Miami Motorists ready to drive on the left?
Car accidents in Miami may rise on one of the city’s most congested highways as motorists will be forced to adjust to driving on the wrong side of the road. Head-on collision at slow speeds are dangerous, at high speeds they can be deadly; but that’s not stopping the city’s planning officials to move forward with the radical changes to the already sketchy State Road 836, which will have motorists driving on the left. Is this London? Despite videos that show fast-paced traffic moving hassle-free along the Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI), the truth is that collisions are imminent. The new DDI, which aims to alter the direction of the the on-and-off ramps, has raised concerns by drivers, with many of them taking their disapproval to social media channels. The change is set to take place towards the end of the August, and is part of the $800 million project to improve the Dolphin Expressway, which connects the western suburbs of Miami-Dade County with the I-95 highway. Despite officials stating that the change is not confusing at all and basically depends on motorists ability to follow the array of traffic signals and markings that are designed to help guide them through the maze of intersections.
