The FHP said almost 5,000 crashes involving bicycles took place in Florida in the last year, with 121 people killed. Some of these bicycle crashes occurred in Seminole, Bay Pines, Largo, Indian Rocks Beach, Indian Shores, Madeira Beach, Treasure Island, Pinellas Park, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Countryside, Dunedin , Palm Harbor, Tarpon Springs, Holiday, New Port Richey, Trinity, Odessa, Land O’ Lakes, Citrus Park, Oldsmar, Tampa, Brandon, Valrico, Ruskin, Gibsonton, Ellenton, Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota as well as Hudson, Spring Hill, Weeki Wachee, Inverness, Homosassa, Dunnellon, Citrus Springs, Lecanto, Hernando.

Deputies that work for the Pinellas County Sheriff, Hillsborough County Sheriff, Pasco County Sheriff as well as other Officers that work with other agencies like Tampa Police Department, Largo Police Department, and Clearwater Police Department would all agree, “Bicycle safety is key for both the bike rider and the automobile driver when traveling on Florida highways and roads.” Too often drivers fail to keep a proper lookout for bicyclists either sharing the roadway or traveling in designated bike lanes. The NHTSA suggests that drivers give three (3) feet of clearance when passing bicyclists, yield to cyclists at intersections, and to be mindful of bicyclists’ presence when turning, opening doors, and pulling out of parking spaces.

Florida Injury Attorney G. Alan Tripp, Jr. encourages bicyclists to wear proper safety equipment, obey the rules of the road, and increase their visibility by wearing bright colors and equipping their bikes with reflectors and lights.
