I’ll give up booze, Netflix, even sex to avoid traffic jams, South Florida drivers tell new train service survey

A lot of South Florida drivers, it seems, would sacrifice almost anything to avoid the delays, frustration and soaring blood pressure that come with South Florida’s near-constant traffic jams.

Five hundred commuters who took part in a recent Brightline survey about traffic congestion were quizzed about trading some of their favorite things — alcohol, watching Netflix and, um, sex — to avoid sitting in mind-numbing traffic.

The survey reported that 48 percent of passengers would ditch alcohol, 29 percent would abandon Netflix and 22 percent would go celibate “if it meant never having to sit in bumper-to-bumper traffic again.”

Brightline, the express passenger train service that began operating in South Florida early last year, also found that 7 in 10 commuters said they’d consider packing up and moving to make their daily commute easier.
