Town of Miami Lakes- Leading The Way in Use of New Technology
 
Miami Lakes, FL - The Town of Miami Lakes along with the cities of Boston and San Francisco will be beta testing a new technology in traffic counting. Historically is has been costly, difficult, and time-consuming to receive traffic data. This device provides the Town with valuable data used by transportation engineers to help create livable streets. The Town will now be able to effectively work with transportation agencies, property developers/owners, and others who are engaged in making decisions about transportation. By creating open-data, we can increase governmental transparency, and provide constituents with the essential data needed to advocate for rational and necessary improvements to the design, maintenance, and policy of transportation systems.

"Nancy Gibbs, Time Magazines new managing editor, recently stated 'We are living through the most immense transfer of power from institutions to individuals in history. Technology has picked the locks of power.' This is exactly what the traffic counter is all about, empowering people!, stated Vice Mayor Manny Cid.
