It is about growth. You can not stop progress. The area hasn't been country for a while now. There should be another route to 95 during evacuation of NSB. Four lane the road all the way to South Atlantic.

This will definitely not make the 4-15 cooridor safer , as a matter of fact it will only make it all the more deadly. One thing the news video and report failed to mention that out of the 115 accidents on 4-15 as of 2009 , that nearly half of those figures were a result of ( Deer ). As a matter of fact , S.R. 46 had a total of 59 vehicular accidents just in 2009 as a result to deer the FHP & Department Of Forestry reported.

While we are concerned about expansioning and peoples driving behaviours , one thing we can not fail to put a stop to is the number of " DEER " related accidents , which many have proven fatal as well. Also failed to mention that an amway security guard was killed on Jungle Road as a result to a deer and a law enforcement officer on 4-15 , also due to a deer. So yea , go ahead , expand 4-15 , up the speed-limits and you will see a bigger result of vehicular accidents thanks to deer. This will definitely not make anything " SAFER " in my estimation. Read all the reports filed through the FHP and Forestry Division , DEER are the leading cause of accidents along S.R. 46 & 4-15 , it's not driver negligence.

the things Ive seen wrong with 415 is in the more commercially populated areas , no turning lanes and no traffic lights..add a few lights and turn lanes, that will help a bit more than adding more traffic to a really nice road..also , the idiots that drive on their ..Im a big believer in doing around the speed limit , especially when riding , I have had morons pass me and 4 or 5 cars at a clip doing well over 80 mph on the road, WTF is the big rush , its a relatively rural road ..not a super highway, Ive kinda stopped riding from the south end to 44 , once on 415 from 44 it is a nice ride ..
On a bit of a different subject , anyone know of any nice rural roads to ride a long ride on?

Like everyone says its the morons driving on 415 that cause the wrecks. I travel 415 alot and just shake my head wondering where are the cops,they could put a stop to it all. I have people pass me all the time doing at least 65 to 70,passing and weaving in and out of cars, I see so many close calls. I think maybe a Dunkin Donuts in a couple of spots along 415 would be best, then we may see some police.

So how do you people of Florida feel about the idea of Fort Pickett near Blackstone, VA being converted into an outlying landing field for the U.S. Navy jets stationed at Fentress Field in Chesapeake, VA and Oceana in Virginia Beach, VA!?

I can honestly say I have no feelings about it at all.
