We live in the Sunshine State – bright, sunny days and almost zero percent chance of snow. As one of the most popular tourist destinations of the country, visitors flock to our state to enjoy our climate and the many attractions that Florida has to offer. Florida residents and tourists alike take advantage of our beautiful weather by spending as much time as possible engaging in outdoor activities, including walking and bicycling on Florida’s beaches, streets, and roadways.
As a result, an increasing number of pedestrians and bicyclists compete for the same space on the road as cars, motorcycles other motor vehicles. This can sometimes end in disastrous results. When coming into contact with a moving motor vehicle, a pedestrian or bicyclist often has little to no protection from an impact. Too often the pedestrian is gravely injured or killed in these scenarios.
