15th crash in 30 months in the MiMo Historic District. Biscayne and NE 75 St.

Ever since I moved to the Upper Eastside I have been documenting crashes along Biscayne Boulevard in the MiMo Historic District.  Most of the crashes have resulted with vehicles being projected on to our sidewalks. It is only a matter of time before someone is killed along Biscayne Boulevard.

The MiMo Biscayne Association has meet with the FDOT on numerous occasions and has asked them to take the appropriate measure to reduce the design speed of the Biscayne Boulevard. There is no good reason why the FDOT should encourage drivers to move at speeds in excess of 45 mph, as this is what this road is currently designed to do. If the FDOT were truly concerned about safety, they would design a road that discourages speeding. Moving cars as quickly as possible is the FDOT’s mantra, not the safety of people.

How many more crashes and people need to be injured or must die before someone from government acts on behalf of their citizens? Since this is an FDOT road neither of our elected officials from the County or City have any power of jurisdiction over this road. This is just a total disgrace.  On what planet is a road like this good for pedestrians and businesses?

Disgusted?   Please send the FDOT District 6 Secretary Gus Pego, City Commissioner Mark Sarnoff and County Commissioner Audrey Edmonson an email by clicking here.

Below are all of the crashes I have documented.

    I swear I won’t be surprised the day I read that someone has gone barreling into the outside patio of Blue Collar. Hopefully, no one will be out there when it happens.
