Barbed Wire Along FL Tpke
In the past 6 months, a barbed wire fence has been installed along a major stretch of the FL Tpke in South FL and along the Sawgrass Expressway. The barbed wire faces out- as to keep people off the highway. Their are many puzzeling questions I have.
1) Why do the need to keep people off this highway and NOT I-95?
2)Why do they need the whole barbed wire thing also since there are canals along most of the Turnpike? If you wanted to walk onto the Turnpike, you would have to swim across alligator infested swamps. People down here are pretty dumb, but I do not read about incidents of people trying to cross the Turnpike on foot!
3)Why the barbed wire along the Sawgrass Expressway in Sunrise, FL.? It borders the Everglades... Nothing but swamps and alligators. Do they need a 8 foot barbed wire fence to keep jumping alligators off the highway?
This is all VERY Suspicious to me. wtf wtf

I would imagine it is to keep tourists from wandering out there to try and take a picture of an agulater. Or as someone else mentioned to keep the skunk ape contained

Oh please you can easily climb over any barb wire fence and not be injured, razor wire on the other hand is a different story.

Maybe it's a money thing.

If Bureacrat Government Agency X gets $150,000,000 in their budget, and they only spend $149,999,999 of it, then they don't get more dough next year.

So if they find they're not pissing away enough of the tax payers' money, and there's a chance they won't meet their pissing away the taxapayers' money quota for that year, then they spend money wherever they can, so they don't lose out.

Bullshit if this was the case they would have built a FENCE.

NOT A BARBED WIRE FENCE HIGHEST ENOUGH TO KEEP PEOPLE IN.

How about everybody reading this try to contact the FL Tpke authority and demand an answer?

Re: Barbed Wire Along FL Tpke
Or we can take a look and see how many motor vehicle collisions there have been over a 5 year period because of Deer? Here in NY and beyond, all state and intersstate highways are fenced off to prevent the deer from getting in the roads.

Research can be done on any conspiracy theory out there and is on a daily basis yet when something like this comes up its suspect right off the bat?

Pennsylvanis state highways have taller fencing than NY but the deer there are not only larger and able to clear our NY fencing, but the terrain is much different as well. A deer may not clear a fence standing on flat ground but on a slight elevation in terrain it can.

Across from city hall-city hall has fencing all around it to

tasered and maced people around Dec 20-22, kicked protesters and homeless out of park-raised high metal fence

put high fencing around the park-across from there they have military police cars in holiday inn parking lot, with humvees

To keep the Mexicans from killing all the alligators.

Seriously, whenever I was driving through, I saw families of Mexicans fishing all along the water line where alligators live. It's probably for their own protection too. They had kids all over the place, under the age of 10.

By the way, since the fence went up, the auto accident rate went down because it contained the wildlife and alligators from being in the road.

The roads were not lit up very well at night.
