I took the high-speed ferry across Lake Michigan -- and it made for the coolest experience
Maybe you’re in Michigan, with family in Wisconsin (or vice versa). Or perhaps you’re planning some sort of trip across state lines, and you came across the idea of using a ferry to save some time around the Great Lakes.
After 2 die off Fisher Island, community association promises to improve ferry safety
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – The Fisher Island Community Association released a statement Thursday asking drivers who are using the ferry to make sure their cars are in park and the emergency brakes are on. The association is also asking drivers to turn off headlights at night and to pay heed to access control officers and deckhands. The association also reported a new investment on marine engineers, architects and designers. According to Sosa, Fisher Island’s ferry system had operated for 20 years “without a blemish on its record” before Emma Afra, 63, of Miami Beach, and Viviane Brahms, 75, of Harrison, New York, died while using the service Tuesday. Afra was in the driver’s seat of a 2019 Mercedes-Benz and Brahms was a passenger when the car fell off the ferry, which is used to shuttle vehicles to and from the private island in Miami Beach.
