What you’re looking at is what’s known as a diverging diamond interchange, an emerging concept in highway design that aims to eliminate the left turn and thereby increase safety, even if, from the top down, it looks like complete chaos.
From some people trying to steal utility poles by latching them to the hood of an SUV to others getting DUIs while riding horses, Florida crime is something most of us will never understand—except for the cows, it seems. The cows have this down so well that they actually helped police catch someone in a car chase.
The one big downside of cars—other than that they crash, they sometimes rust and that the good ones are slowly getting phased out by people who want gears to shift themselves and by crossover demand—is that sometimes, small animals crawl into them and can’t get out without help. This kitten got that help.
Sometimes, you have to wonder if people in Florida want to keep the “Florida man” joke alive, thus continually passing the baton on depicting caricatures of human stupidity. A new Florida man, when stopped by cops recently, claimed he wasn’t drinking and driving because he only drank bourbon while stopped.
Take one look around the JDM import scene in America and one thing becomes immediately clear: Something is going on in the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles.
Doing donuts in a car is one of the highest forms of humankind’s interactions with the physical world. It’s a delicate dance of form and shape, of machine and biology, of rubber and asphalt. That said, if you do them in the middle of a busy bridge and cause an enormous traffic jam, you’re a jackass who’s going to ruin…
Here’s a protip for all you aspiring criminals out there: if you’re going to hand over camera footage to the police, try to make sure that footage doesn’t contain video of you committing crimes.
Two separate Florida police departments have reported serious engine problems with more than 75 vehicles, and now testing has revealed it’s likely due to a contaminated fuel source, according to the My Palm Beach Post.
Much like all of us would like to do on a stressful day during our 9-to-5 work grind, a Honda Civic rolled into a Florida pool Tuesday afternoon. Who doesn’t love a good dip? Local police said driver of the car didn’t get it into park before getting out, and it rolled into a nearby pool with two passengers inside.
The appeal of accelerated bridge construction—where precast parts are pieced together and within hours installed over a roadway before being tested and reinforced for weeks—is that it minimizes road closures. The downside is that the smallest mistakes can lead to disaster. This method, used to build a pedestrian…
The 12 Hours of Sebring is an annual gathering of like-minded motoring and alcohol enthusiasts where they are free to embrace their inner Florida Man. There’s also a world-famous endurance race going on at the same time, but these fine Floridian gentlemen were too busy with their own motorsport endeavors to pay much…
The main span of a pedestrian bridge at Florida International University constructed as recently as Saturday has collapsed, reportedly leaving “several” people dead and crushing cars underneath.
An Infiniti QX70 driver in Miami crashed into a bunch of cars, and then apparently tried to escape. But a group of angry citizens ran him down, and wrecked his already-crashed SUV, with one guy using a sledgehammer to inflict the karmic, vigilante justice.
This Nissan S-Chassis driver down in Orlando was, perhaps, not having the best day already, needing a tow off track. Things got worse when the tow truck showed up.
Video showing what clearly appears to be a Florida Highway Patrolman in a Highway Patrol Dodge Charger lining up alongside a Lamborghini Aventador and racing down the road is now under investigation.
A guy driving a 2003 BMW X5 rode nearly 50 miles on Monday at speeds over 100 mph after he claimed his gas pedal got stuck, at which point he told police, who went to quite some lengths to stop him.
I interrupt our normal programming with a somewhat batshit story about an airplane, a college student from Florida, and her dwarf hamster, which was named Pebbles. Pebbles is no longer with us, because, the college student says, Pebbles was flushed down a toilet on the advice of a Spirit Airlines employee after…
Have you ever been so messed up that you’ve gone to an ATM, took out about $200, and rolled it up and ate it like a burrito? Me neither, yet, but 28-year-old Douglas Francisco came pretty close when he was found passed out in his Hyundai, blocking the drive-through lane of a Bank of America. He tried to order a…
Leaving an unattended car running is almost like painting a giant bullseye with “THEFT” in the middle on it, but it’s a conscious choice that people can freely make—for now, at least. A Florida state representative wants to charge theft victims with a crime if their cars are left running with the keys in them.
Miami-Dade police issued 123,731 traffic citations in 2015. So far this year, they’ve given out 76,563. Part of the reason for that massive dip, according to The Miami Herald? Police are running out of paper tickets.
