But, it's just another animal, why slow down?
What a concept!
The part of Route 41 Florida known as the Tamiami Trail is a Scenic Drives through the Everglades in Florida.
Why would anyone be speeding while traveling this beautiful road?
The Tamiami Trail, has a maximum posted speed of 60 miles per hour during the daytime, although many drivers exceed that speed.
With nighttime limits of 45 miles per hour.
This speed limit is ridicules and now, because of the new interstate, should be dropped down to 45 daytime 35 nighttime.
Remember, the life you save could be mine?
If you are in a hurry we, the government, built this speed road just for you, a three or four line 70 MPH highway that you should be on.
This way I, as well as so many animals, will not keep getting in your way?
If you are in a hurry and must travel on Rte. # 41, travel about 3/4’s of it and then get on Rte. #75 and drive even faster?
Can new technology help save Florida’s endangered panthers from being run down on the highway?

No, dropping the speed limit and police patrols will.
This trail is a last area of "safety" for many wildlife.
This includes our Florida Panthers.

Now for this government in Florida.
Acceptable losses is a car manufactures slogan and should not be used against those with no voice to protest!
This new RADS,(The roadside animal detection system), is only as good as the drivers that obey the signs?
RADs is an attempt to help with the traffic threat, but was only the result of local sportsmen objecting to a more proven method for reducing wildlife losses.
On “Alligator Alley” a four-lane Interstate 75, more than 30 underpasses now give wildlife a way to cross under the road, and 40 miles of fencing guide animals to the safer route.
But these crossings come with a hefty price tag—$4 million.
The two miles of proposed fencing along Route 41 would keep panthers off the road.
However, it would also prevent sportsmen from parking on the shoulder and hiking into the brush to hunt or fish.
Folks, this is Florida, a tropical state, hunters have hundreds of thousands of places to pull over and do their dirty work, why do they also feel the need to kill on this beautiful scenic travel road?
Because they can!
Guns don't kill, greedy monsters kill.
