The northbound lanes of Interstate 95 are blocked just north of Atlantic Avenue because of “police activity,” Florida Department of Transportation reports. It isn’t clear what police are investigating, but all lanes in the northbound direction have been shut down as of 8:17 a.m., FDOT reports.
Ahhh, just another normal day in sunny South Florida. Bumper-to-bumper traffic slowly pushing every 9-5’er closer and closer to madness, helicopters hovering above, what a day to be alive! To what unfortunate circumstance can we owe today’s traffic to? A soft-shell turtle crossing the interstate? Or maybe a snowbird cruising down I-95 at 45 MPH, the possibilities are truly endless…

The police activity that blocked all northbound lanes of Interstate 95 in Delray Beach has cleared, Florida Department of Transportation reports. Emergency cars blocking the on-ramp at Atlantic Avenue have also cleared, FDOT reports. Traffic remains congested after the half-hour road block.

A woman called police to report a bomb in her car after a “premonition in her head,” Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Mark Wysocky said.
The woman had no other indication that there was a bomb in the car, only the vision. Police shut traffic down on Interstate 95 north of Atlantic Avenue to search the car, but found no bomb, Wysocky said.
Like a scene from a Disney channel sitcom, this woman had a “premonition in her head” that there was a bomb in her car. Seriously? What is this lady putting in her coffee that gives her a vision of a bomb being in her car? Flakka, perhaps? Maybe she just really didn’t feel like going to work, who knows…
The scene was cleared and Interstate 95 was re-opened after no bombs were found in the woman’s vehicle. Florida’s heat and extreme caffeine consumption will do crazy things to someone.
