3-4 More delays per hour for first responders - police, fire & ambulances

Florida All Aboard High Speed Trains Cause 32 Additional Traffic Delays Daily

We have 16 trains a day now, and All Aboard Florida is going to make it 50 (counting passenger and freight trains). 32 additional high speed trains running on FEC tracks that nearly divide many of the Florida's East Coast communities in half could create major delays for ambulances headed to a life-or-death emergency. These trains will do 16 round trips which means 3-4 trains will run each hour from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. There are approximately 30 road crossings of the FEC tracks in Martin County alone, 28 of which are in moderately dense urbanized areas. Multiply this problem up and down the other counties up and down Florida's East Coast.
