Owning a car in a city like Miami is like owning a Metro card in New York. Whether you work five miles away from home or fifty, you are probably getting in your car every morning and driving to work. Most people prefer to lease their vehicles instead of purchasing them due to the fact that every three to four years they have the option of going back to their dealership and trading their old car for a brand new one. Times have changed and the internet has made purchasing a vehicle easier than ever. Consumers can go to places like Autobytel.com and know exactly what kind of vehicles are in stock in many dealerships. Downtown Miami offers a wide variety of choices when it comes to purchasing a vehicle. Braman Motors is one of the largest Dealerships located in downtown and have been in business for the past thirty years. They sell different type of brands including Mini, BMW, Cadillac, Rolls Royce, Spyker, Bentley, Kia and Bugatti. A typical family in Miami has at least two vehicles and sometimes up to four. Unfortunately public transportation is not something we can count on here in Miami. The bus schedule is not always reliable and the Metrorail only travels North and South. Almost everyone who uses the Metrorail has to drive to a station and leave the vehicle parked in a lot or garage. Usually both parents have their own vehicle and if they have kids in high school, they probably have one too. It is very typical for a fifteen or sixteen year old teenager to get a car for their birthday. This is what makes driving in Miami challenging at times. According to a survey done in 2012, for the second consecutive year, this city has earned the title of worst road rage incidents in the entire country. During peak traffic hours, drivers will usually take about an hour and a half before getting anywhere near their destination.
