| TRAFFIC PROBLEMS IN FLORIDA
All states in the U.S. are divided into counties. There are 67
counties in Florida. Since it is the fastest-growing state, there
have been many changes in the highway system. One example of these
changes is Escambia County in northwest Florida.
In Escambia there were 11 surveys in the year 2000 to determine
the traffic on secondary roads. The Florida Department of Transportation
conducted the survey. Residents were asked the following questions:
1. Is there a lot of traffic in front
of your house?
2. Are there a lot of cars during the
3. Will there be a lot of traffic during
4. Was there a lot of traffic in front
of your house yesterday?
5. Has there been more traffic in front
of your house this year than last year?
6. Would there be a lot of traffic in
front of your house if you lived in the Molino area (rural)?
There will be 6 new secondary highways in Escambia in the year
2001, but not because of the survey. The results were lost in
the computer system. So why was the mix-up in the presidential
elections a big surprise?
