I-95 Express Lanes Dangerous; Petition Calls for Change | New Times Broward-Palm Beach

Last month, two young women on motorcycles were traveling north on the I-95 express lanes in North Miami. Suddenly, a car in the regular lanes — or “free lanes” — darted through the plastic poles and struck Cynthia Fleischmann and Catherine Perez.

The young women were rushed to the hospital in critical condition. Fleischmann, an emerging bodypainting artist in Miami, lost her right leg below the knee. Her hip was fractured. Perez has a broken foot and is still undergoing reconstructive surgeries.
