There was a heavy Miami Police presence at a speed trap on Hobie Beach Thursday (1/21) afternoon. Officers were first pulling over speeding vehicles exiting the Key, they then proceeded to the other side and began stopping incoming traffic exceeding the speed limit. I saw a handful of lead foot drivers being pulled over & ticketed, however I did witness a black/dark gray Porsche speed up the William Powell Bridge at an estimated 80mph while the police were in plain view just on the opposite side of the causeway.

This speed trap is a direct response due to the pressure being applied by cyclists and pedestrians alike who use the Rickenbacker Causeway and do not feel safe. The tragic death of Christophe Le Canne has really struck a nerve with the community and rightfully so. Demand change now because we don't know for how long we'll have their attention.

Let your commissioners and FDOT representatives know you're concerned and ask them what they are doing to make the roads safer.

I, personally call for a slower speed limit and/or actual enforcement of the present limit, wider bike lanes (particularly past the Seaquarium when heading into the village), and better signage. However, I object to a barrier wall as a few have suggested. A barrier wall is too costly & may in fact cause more injuries, no serious cyclist will feel comfortable riding in between two barriers. The thought of it alone makes me uneasy.

Here's a brief clip, sorry no actual footage of someone being pulled over.
