This Is A Sincere Thank You to the Florida Highway Patrol Of Tampa Bay
Typically….when heading north bound on I-275 from St. Petersburg FL the traffic going into the Tampa Airport at any given time on any given day can be backed up due to drivers cutting in at the last second at the exit to TPA where there is also an exit for Kennedy Blvd.
If people would simply understand that the backup is caused by people like themselves cutting in line. If you stop doing it, then the backup will go away.
I have seen countless accidents due to this. It really gets me when other professional drivers, including those from the same company I represent cut in also.
It simply is unsafe and causes more delay.
I have been wishing for a long time that the Florida State Highway Patrol, FHP would sit there right at the exit and form a presence. It would help a great deal, because people would not cut in as much.
Well, FHP Tampa must have heard me wishing because the other day as I approached the exit there was NO backup…..none, nadda, zip, ZERO backup!!
Why? Because there was an FHP Squad sitting right there at the split! I LOVED IT!
It was awesome and a first for me!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
A HUGE THANK YOU TO FHP TAMPA BAY!!
Please Please Please, FHP of Tampa, sit there daily.
