Two motorcyclists are suing the Florida Department of Transportation, alleging the department’s poor maintenance of the plastic express lane separators on Interstate 95 encourages dangerous driving.

The lawsuits, filed by Coral Gables firm Colson Hicks Eidson, claim Cynthia Fleischmann and Catherine Milagros Perez Garcia suffered devastating injuries after a driver crossed through a gap in the orange poles into the express lanes, hitting the two women.
