Cyclist Safety in Florida

Here’s a great article from The Economist that really shows the problem:

Imagine…Florida’s cyclist death rate is higher than that of the United Kingdom which has 3 times the population and far more people using bicycles because of the cost of gas.

It really is time for a fundamental makeover of roads in Florida and not just ‘adding token bicyle lanes’.

Traffic calming principles need to be learned and applied by all Florida’s roadway designers.
