WHAT IS THE USE FOR STATION 1640 am (The Florida Highway Administration's station?

After waiting almost a full hour in the backup from this horrible accident, I couldn't help but wonder why Station 1640 am wasn't being used to warn motorists to avoid the scene. After all, it is a resource that taxpayers fund.

This could have been even more disastrous, if there had been a fuel explosion.(As it was, the fire was still burning when I was finally allowed to get off via the Southern Boulevard exit that was only feet away from me).

Do I think anything is going to be done in response to this post? Not until someone figures out how much commerce/money was lost as a result.
