Rush hour traffic in Miami, Florida is a real pain these days, isn’t it? With so many people on the road who have little-to-zero driving etiquette, it can even be worse for some of us. If it isn’t the time we spend in rush hour, sometimes as much as an hour or more just trying to get home, then it’s the gas being spent in idle. Anyone with a fuel mileage gauge knows when the car is stopped, fuel economy goes way down. Luckily, there are many cars out there with great fuel economy, so the hit isn’t too harsh.
Miami, Florida Traffic
According to a study on global traffic and congested cities in the world, Miami, Florida makes the top ten list. The study was conducted by INRIX, a global company that specializes in connected car services and transportation analytics. Using a new methodology to provide data-rich evaluation or urban travel, they managed to measure over 1000 cities back in 2016, and found those with the most congestion and how much the average consumer spends in the peak hours of traffic a year.
Currently, it’s unclear what Hurricane Matthew’s impact on South Florida will be. But so far, there is a large chance that the residents of Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties will feel some effect from the storm like rain and wind. So not only do residents need to keep an eye on the weather reports and forecast, residents also need to prepare for the possibility of a hurricane in the next three days.
With all that being said, many people know how to prepare their homes for a hurricane like Matthew, but have you thought about what to do with your vehicle(s)? If not, here are some tips.
Before the storm, fill up on gas! Tropical storms and hurricanes are notorious for leading to long delays and lines at the gas station because not only do cars need gas, but backup generators need gas as well. Fill up today or tomorrow to avoid the long lines or any other unforeseen issues that could occur from a big demand in gas stations.
