One needs to see the photos to believe the lack of traffic - photos taken on 3-18-2020 depicting Old Cutler Road in Cutler Bay near 205. An empty road at rush hour (6:40 PM) when it is usually bumper to bumper.
Pinecrest's popular Community Center - sits unused. It is usually packed with activity on a Wednesday early evening.
Starbucks - in the early afternoon of March 18th - located at 14795 US1 in Palmetto Bay - Usually a busy community gathering place.
Eggs have been a concern. This store not only has eggs; this store has bunny eggs in stock! Confidence is high that the photo to the above right is a joke!
Grocery stores are being restocked, but many aisles remain bare
Traffic was unimaginably light at times. A friend send these photos taken on SW 144th Street near Old Cutler Road. 3/17/2020, taken at approximately 6:00 PM. A time when this street is filled with rush hour traffic.
Photos provided of their office remote work space and the social distancing at Brickell City Centre 3/17/2020
A FOSDU advises that the Falls is a ghost town at mid-day Tuesday, 3/17/2020. Many stores are closed. Some are open. A few restaurants open. Those stores not closed due to Coronavirus will probably close due to lack of willing customers due to the Coronavirus.
Above - cruises to nowhere. The cruise ships are in port. The Port of Miami has many (don't know if all) the ships in Port. I was told that these photos were taken safely from the side from the photographer who was able to pull over to a safe spot. And look how empty the causeway is, the photo was taken at morning rush hour heading toward the City of Miami, 3/17/2020.
Additional rush hour photos - when was the last time you recall (if ever) the traffic being this light on the Palmetto (taken at approximate Bird Road area).
Corona fueled fears - credited with the sudden and dramatic drop in gas prices (told this is Marathon at SW 168th and US1) and the photo that triggered the post.
