Spring break traffic invades the beach. And it’ll be almost a month before it wanes.

If you don’t have to go to Fort Lauderdale beach, don’t. At least not until Spring Break ends.

A throng of beautiful young people, flashing the latest swimwear, waiting for Uber and Lyft, are distracting drivers and snarling traffic.

“Drivers checking out the crowd are slowing traffic down,” said Casey Liening, a spokeswoman for Fort Lauderdale police. “Traffic is a major issue. … Ride-sharing use seems to be up.”

Police are asking drivers to avoid State Road A1A when dropping off or picking up friends. Anyone who stops and blocks the road — and that means you, Uber and Lyft — could be ticketed.
