Part of the beauty of living in the Sunshine State is being able to enjoy the incredible climate. A lot of the time, this translates to a population of cyclists that grows each year. As a result, this creates more activity on the road. And sadly, reports show that cyclists are far more likely to be killed in Florida than any other state. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), Florida has dominated the rankings of most dangerous cities for cyclists for years. This means bicycle accidents involving motorists are far too commonplace in civil court. Unfortunately, many of these cases include serious injury.
DID YOU KNOW: A report using data from the National Center for Statistics and Analysis states:
- From 2007-2016, Florida had 6.2 deaths per 100,000 people
- Florida’s per-capita cyclist death rate was almost 60% higher than the next closest state, which was 3.9 deaths for Louisiana
