Florida is the Deadliest State for Bikers

In Central Florida, an estimated 1,300 people use a bicycle to get to work each day, and Orlando is no exception. Still, even as more and more people use their bike as their main means of transportation, road planning and safety has not caught up, and Florida has the highest per capita rate of bicycle accidents in the country.

Many of these accidents occur in Orlando, a large city with a growing number of cyclists and an aging population. The city is working to become more bike friendly, but in the meantime, accidents can happen, and the results can range from minor scratches to life threatening injuries.
