Quiet Street

Traffic in Miami gets worse by the day and traffic jams are the way of life. Major through fares around the city are clogged, especially around the beginning and ending of office days. Commuters know how to gain a few precious seconds by invading smaller neighboring streets. The city of Miami (and all other communities as well) combats this problem by constructing expensive traffic circles that force traffic to significantly slow down. In this neighborhood, a cheaper solution is offered: installation of 4-way stop signs at all intersections. Streets used to be enjoyed by kids roller skating at all hours now have to be shared with illegally speeding cars. These offenders are usually deterred by too many stop signs and will find another way to avoid getting stuck in traffic.
