Thank you FHP TAMPA!

This Is A Sincere Thank You to the Florida Highway Patrol Of Tampa Bay

 

Typically….when heading north bound on I-275 from St. Petersburg FL the traffic going into the Tampa Airport at any given time on any given day can be backed up due to drivers cutting in at the last second at the exit to TPA where there is also an exit for Kennedy Blvd.

 

If people would simply understand that the backup is caused by people like themselves cutting in line. If you stop doing it, then the backup will go away.  

I have seen countless accidents due to this. It really gets me when other professional drivers, including those from the same company I represent cut in also. 

It simply is unsafe and causes more delay.

 

I have been wishing for a long time that the Florida State Highway Patrol, FHP would sit there right at the exit and form a presence. It would help a great deal, because people would not cut in as much.

 

Well, FHP Tampa must have heard me wishing because the other day as I approached the exit there was NO backup…..none, nadda, zip, ZERO backup!!

 

Why?  Because there was an FHP Squad sitting right there at the split!  I LOVED IT! 

It was awesome and a first for me!

 

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

A HUGE THANK YOU TO FHP TAMPA BAY!!

Please Please Please, FHP of Tampa, sit there daily.

It Works!

Thanks Again!!

Lots of Traffic! Hire a car service!

I came across this article the other day

Just another reason to hire a car service

:)

8 BILLION hours in traffic!!

Call me today if you are coming into Tampa Bay Florida and I will be glad to drive you through the traffic and provide complimentary snacks and beverages along the way.

From KFOR News Channel 4

Americans were stuck in traffic for 8 billion hours in 2015

NEW YORK – Pity the Angeleno with a crosstown commute.

Los Angeles has the worst traffic of any U.S. city in terms of average time wasted per commuter, according to a 2015 traffic scorecard from transportation analytics firm INRIX.

Los Angeles snagged the top spot with 81 hours spent in traffic per commuter in 2015.

Residents of Washington, D.C. and San Francisco were a little better off – but not much. They tied for second with 75 wasted hours per year.

It’s not all bad news, however.

INRIX said increased traffic often comes hand-in-hand with economic advances.

“Cities that have experienced the most economic improvement during the past year are at highest risk for consequences related to worsened traffic conditions, including reduced productivity, higher emissions and increased stress levels,” the company said in a news release.

INRIX said commuters spent more than 8 billion extra hours of traffic across the U.S. in 2015.

Here’s the complete ranking of time wasted per commuter:

  • Los Angeles – 81 hours/year
  • Washington, D.C. – 75 hours
  • San Francisco – 75 hours
  • Houston – 74 hours
  • New York – 73 Hours
  • Seattle, Wash. – 66 hours
  • Boston – 64 hours
  • Chicago – 60 hours
  • Atlanta – 59 hours
  • Honolulu – 49 hours

How do those commute times compare to European cities? Only London ranked higher than Los Angeles, with 101 hours of delay per user.

And here is a photo of traffic I was in on 3-15-2016 @ 5:40pm near the Rocky Point area of Tampa FL.

Serving the entire Tampa Bay Region and Beyond

Hey Tampa Bay! Is Your Taxi or Car Service Legal?

If you are taking a Taxi or Car Service in the Tampa Bay Area it must be legally operated and licensed.

If it isn’t…..

It isn’t Cool, It Isn’t “Rad” or “Bad”, “Sick” or “Sweet”

Possibly, Very Possibly….It isn’t Safe

It’s Wrong….On numerous levels

EXAMPLE:

In Pinellas County, FL the St. Petersburg/Clearwater side of Tampa Bay, the following is an example of the types of Permit/Licensing Stickers which you should see on the Taxi or Car Service you are hiring.
In the picture below, which is the Towncar I drive for BATS Taxi & Towncar Service you will notice 3 Permit Stickers on the rear windshield. You may click on the photo for a larger image. There will also be some Permit Stickers on the front windshield.  Below I will show you all of them for our area.

20150623_203346

Close up of the rear Permit Stickers

*White Permit Sticker with 9/30/15 is for the City of St. Petersburg, FL/Pinellas

**Green Permit Sticker with the Plane is for the Tampa International Airport

***Yellow Permit Sticker is for operating legally in Hillsborough County

Front Windshield Permit Stickers

***Notice the Yellow Permit Sticker below states that it is “Only Valid With Current Annual Inspection Sticker On Rear Window.” 

Legal vehicles and Services MUST be Inspected and Certified Safe by Law

Legally Licensed, Background Checked and Approved Drivers

Below are my personal ID Badges for Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties

IF, your Driver does not display or if they cannot show you these badges for the area or areas he/she serves, then they simply are not operating legally…..Period.

 ID Badges and Permit Stickers must be renewed yearly

 Simply having the badges is not enough….they MUST go along with the Company you are driving for or contracted to, which is on file with the proper local authorities.

IF, your driver has these ID Badges but are transporting you in their personal vehicle, they are not legal.

Again, they must have valid Permit Stickers like those pictured above.

Think about that. If there is no paper trail….there is no accountability

(I am not saying they look good I am saying they are legal)

:)

Below is my Hillsborough County Public Transit Commission ID Badge. Background check is performed by the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Department and we the driver pays the $100 fee.

Below Is my ID Badge as issued by the St. Petersburg, FL Police Department

Background Check performed by the St. Petersburg Police Department and we the drivers pay the $90 fee.

20150611_161330

Bottom line…..

If the Taxi or Car Service you are in are not legal….

If your driver isn’t legal……

  No paper trail…….No accountability.

Think About That

Thank you for stopping by, Lance Greene

Flooding in Tampa Bay

This was my drive on Wednesday 6-10-2015

Through Hyde Park in Tampa to Davis Island which in itself was basically under water

So much so that they closed the main entrance to Davis Island

On this afternoon, it took me two hours to get my client home….a 40 minute ride normally

20150610_164050 20150610_164047 20150610_164038

Oh…… and then there is the boat I want, which is docked at Davis Island :)
