Miami Traffic Tickets Double in Last Decade, Making Us by Far Worst Drivers in Florida

How did Miami drivers become the worst in the state?

You've seen his face. He's that swarthy guy wearing a dark suit and a darker expression while thrusting forth a traffic ticket on signs throughout Little Havana and Hialeah.
