Message From Executive Director, Greg Stuart 

Happy Monday! It's that time of the year again when we all celebrate Labor Day, a time to appreciate all the hard work we've done and just relax. For most of us, it means going to the beach, grilling some burgers, and just enjoying time with friends and family. However, we must not forget the importance of staying safe this weekend. Do not drink and drive and follow all traffic laws. There will be increased police presence and checkpoints all around Broward County to ensure everyone’s safety. Additionally, avoid distractions while driving and use your seatbelt at all times. Keep an eye out for other drivers on the road and do your part to keep yourself, your passengers, and other road users safe. If you plan on consuming alcohol, it's best to have a designated driver or use ride-share services such as Uber or Lyft. These services provide a safe way for you and your loved ones to get home. Beachgoers can stay safe by being mindful of ocean currents and riptides. Make sure to always swim in areas where lifeguards are present and pay attention to any warnings they may have. Do not swim alone. It's also important to stay hydrated and avoid prolonged sun exposure. The Florida sun can be brutal, and heatstroke is no joke. Pay attention to railroad crossings and check out our Don't Risk It video here, and be careful driving around construction projects in Broward County especially around the 595 construction areas. A special thank you to the construction workers! On another note, thank you for reading last week’s Mobility Monday, I got a lot of comments about commuter rail. We at the Broward MPO appreciate your feedback. We couldn’t do it without you! Please note that as new information becomes available, we will keep the community informed and engaged about commuter rail in our region. Please stay safe, have fun, and make good decisions this Labor Day weekend. Happy Labor Day!
