Miami Beach Is Closing Causeways, And Imposing Spring Break South Beach Curfew
The Spring Break crowds in Miami Beach are a hot mess right now. So much so that because of overcrowding, rowdiness, and fighting, the city has declared a state of emergency.
During a news conference, the city's mayor announced an 8 p.m. curfew for the South Beach entertainment district to curb the parting going on.
He also stated that they were closing roads leading into the area. They did and it caused such a headache for locals who were stuck in traffic for hours longer than they had expected.
While describing the crowds, the city manager described it as resembling a rock concert. He said, "As we hit the peak of spring break, we are quite simply overwhelmed. You couldn't see the pavement and you couldn't see the grass."
The curfew and closures will be in effect for at least 72 hours but having restrictions last through to April are not ruled out after an emergency conference with city officials over the weekend.
My advice would certainly be to avoid Miami right now at all costs.
