Driving the Overseas Highway

Driving the Overseas Highway

Driving the Overseas Highway is one of the joys of the Florida Keys as far as I'm concerned. The views are outstanding once you get down to the jew creek bridge, then comes Key Largo and it is beautiful all the way down. Safe driving is a cause that we support in many ways. Motorcycle driving or for anyone driving in a car, it doesn't matter, as we continue to have to educate drivers to be more responsible behind the wheel. We all realize there are a lot of distractions no matter where you're driving, but here especially with the views and the sightseeing. The big problem seems to be distracted drivers, mainly because of smart phone technology and computers on the Motorcycles or the ones are using inside their automobiles. Yes motorcycle riders are ones that are using smart phones, surprising as it is, since it only takes one hand to do it. People have done a good job about not drinking alcohol, and we have much less of a problem today then we used to years ago. People now have to change the focus onto their smart phones and make sure they're off when driving, but it's okay for the passenger. I'm talking about the driver going down the Overseas Highway, no matter if you're in layton or in the middle of someplace that's isolated and there's not much traffic, danger lurks when you look down and take your eyes off the wheel for two or three seconds or even one second. Please help everybody we love our community and we want to do things right to save lives and injuries. From the desk of the Monroe County traffic division manager.
