Miami Traffic

Miami Traffic and Stress

Are you one of the many drivers stuck on the Palmetto, Turnpike or I-95? I know the feeling! Traffic in Miami seems to be an all day event, what used to be at certain hours now happens at 2 in the afternoon, just driving from Kendall to Westchester. It is getting ridiculous! According to a study, we have the second most stressful commute in the nation.

As we all know stress is “no bueno” and just helps propel certain illnesses, especially those related to heart conditions. This can range from high blood pressure to something more serious like a heart attack. They call stress the silent killer because sometimes there are no warning signs things just build up. Year after year of dealing with the stressful conditions of driving in Miami, bumper to bumper traffic and road rage are not a good combination.

You might be wondering, what does all this have to do with life insurance? I’m glad you asked! Having a heart attack can be a trigger in certain policies for a critical condition that will give money to you. That’s right! You don’t have to die to receive benefits. The great thing is that you’re not tied with what to do with the funds, you can go on a trip, pay the bills, or anything else you want.


Heart attacks are stressful situations not just for the person but also for the family and with the way paychecks are in Miami, unless you’re working you’re probably not getting paid. While many people survive heart attacks, physically, sometimes financially it can be a total devastation and hard to recover from. Not only is it dealing with the heart attack but also with :

  • Medical Bills
  • Lost Wages
  • Changes in Standard of Living
  • Medicine

Life insurance can be there to step in and help cover some of those bills or to help maintain the standard of living the family has been accustomed to. This is something that is affordable and not only provides benefits in case of a heart attack but other chronic or critical illnesses such as cancer, stroke, and many others.

Next time you’re stuck in traffic, maybe put on some smooth jazz and relax because you’re going to get to where you’re going, it just might take you longer than expected.
