Welcome- glad to see you made it. How was the ride?


Difficult question where to avoid. In many areas you can be more or less okay but a few blocks from not such a great place. Coconut Grove is an example.

Stay away from over town, opa locka/ hialeah- parts of cutler ridge.

Just be aware in general, it's not that bad, but it is, if that makes any sense. Big City anywhere stuff.

No roads that are very great, on and off ramps for twisties.

All roads: assume people are trying to kill you.

They'll be on the phone etc. many here don't even have a license and many that do shoudn't be driving.

Read-old and from a small island, communist dictatorship

No matter how dumb or unreal, be ready for their u turn from outside lane or reversing against traffic to catch an exit..

Miami is really nice. Just moved a few months ago to Port Saint Luice from Miami and miss everything but the heavy, nasty, crazy, "Don't know how to drive" traffic that do seem like they want you dead. Watch out for those "2fast2furious" speed racers with the R racing stickers that give them 300hp. Just might see a home made spoiler fly off and hit you. I'd get cut off everytime I went out. As far as roads that are fun.... close to nothing. Oh and another thing with the heavy traffic... You have to be careful looking to your side at the very sexy ladies cause you never know when those "I thought I saw" drivers spot a million dollar bill on the road cause let me tell ya... they will stop for something only they see. Either that or they stop for no reason.

Assume they are all trying to kill you.
If they haven't tried yet, it's because they don't know your'e there.
Which in turn means they could kill you.

Expect the worst of the cagers around you. You will rarely be disappointed.

Welcom man.

I love everyone's comments about their own town but it is true from what I have experienced on visits.

Hope you like it down there.

All the roads suck ass down here.

That is why I have been getting more and more into stunting, it is the only entertaining thing I can find to do.
