Last year, a driver hit two bicyclists in Key Biscayne, killing one and severely injuring the other. The driver faces DUI charges and felony in the first degree.
Stories like this can be scary for cyclists who bike to work on a daily basis or for pleasure on weekends. In this particular accident, the bikers were in the bike lane when they were hit, and the driver fled the scene. Though Florida has excellent dedicated bike lanes, there is nothing to guarantee cyclists are safe while on the road with motorized vehicles.
With consistently sunny weather, Florida is a wonderful state to bike in year-round, and cyclists shouldn’t have to worry about their safety while riding. Drunk driving is a serious issue, and one that bikers can’t always protect against. Florida is also a state visited by millions of tourists each year, and sometimes they’re distracted navigating their way around a new state, and they don’t pay attention to bikers. Similarly, many tourists bike in Florida, and don’t know where to turn if they are injured.
