The people have spoken and now they must slow down.

On Feb. 10, the Florida Highway Patrol launched Operation I-95 Saturation in Miami-Dade County, essentially doubling the number of troopers on one of South Florida’s main arteries. The increased enforcement will be in place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday this week.

“Well, it came about because we’ve gotten complaints that there haven’t been enough troopers out on I-95,” said Trooper Joe Sanchez, a spokesman for the FHP in Miami-Dade County.
