May G*d have mercy.

I fish the Talbots most weeks. Heckscher drive is N Florias **poster child** for reckless driving, Everybody speeds, and most everybody passes carelessly. Rare radar checks just prove: cops don't care how folks drive. At all.

In addition the often conflicting speed-limit controls micro.manage drivers so you really have a hard time learning what is the right thing to do. Are multiple up/down shifting speed-zones within a mile supposed to improve safety?

Road-side Developers got a **free shot** at direct access to Heckscher that cannot be supported. What a poorly scheduled, policed and monitored mess.
