LOOK BEFORE YOU LOCK

As temperatures begin to increase, remember to look before you lock! Did you know in just 10 minutes the temperature inside of a car can rise almost 20 degrees? Never leave a child in a car unattended. A child’s body temperature rises 3 to 5 times faster than an adult’s. Help prevent a tragedy and look before you lock!

AN MPO MINUTE
It didn’t take long for mother nature to ring at the start of the 2022 hurricane season. With over a foot of rain coming down in less than 24 hours this past weekend, many parts of South Florida’s transportation system were paralyzed due to high flood waters.

As a region we must seriously begin preparing for our future reality – climate change will cause more severe storms, sea-level rise, and extreme heat. By planning for and investing in resilience now, the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization and its partners are preparing our infrastructure to withstand these challenges and preserve our communities.
