Please Wear a Helmet, Ride in Groups, Use Bike Paths and Watch Your Children Play!!
 
Please wear a Helmet whenever you are riding your bicycle. Remind your loved ones too.  When you are riding a bicycle try to ride in groups whenever possible, as there is also safety in numbers.   If a Safe Bicycle Path is available, please try to use that rather than being in the roadway.  Please obey all traffic devices as they also apply to cyclists.  Avoid distractions such talking on your cell phone when riding.  If you are riding at night, please have bright lights on your Bicycle and wear reflective gear to enable drivers to see you. Finally parents, please watch your children.  A tragic amount of accidents involve children riding their bicycles without supervision and being on roadways that have drivers going over 25mph.

When Cycling, Wear a Helmet  Ride in Groups, Use Bike Paths and Watch the Children!

​​​​​​Bicycle Accidents

There is some good news when it comes to bicycle safety.  It appears that an increase in helmet safety, cycling groups and better insulated riding areas has helped in reducing the total number of bicycle related death. However, Florida’s bicycle accident death rates are still unacceptable, as they are a staggering three times the national rate. (See reference)                                                                     


Also unfortunate, is that bicycle injuries in Florida are still on the rise.  Annually, Florida has nearly 5,000 bicycle crash-related injuries, and the numbers are rising.   One of the reasons for the astounding amount of bicycle accidents in Florida, is related to the State and differing cites/counties lack of properly designed roadways, including an unacceptable void in the placement of bicycle paths.  Another cause of bicycle accidents is the ever increasing technology related distractions, which can have both car drivers as well as bike riders being. (See reference) 

The statistics are quite tragic.  These accidents can destroy families, rob dreams and leave someone severely injured or forever limited in their abilities.  Sadly, an injured person can lose their jobs, lose wages, incur significant medical bills, undergo extreme pain and suffering as well as emotional distress, need further costly treatment, and undergo risky surgeries as a result of the negligence of another.
