Florida often leads the nation in bicycle traffic deaths and injuries in numbers far out of proportion to the population.

Bicycle Accident FAQs:

Ride Safely and Take Steps to Protect Yourself

Since cyclists are so exposed and vulnerable, they are often the victim of serious auto accident injury or wrongful death even in a relatively low-speed impact with a car, truck or bus. Ride defensively, and stay aware of your surroundings and traffic conditions at all times.

When traveling on city streets, state and county roads and highways, it is important to know and follow the rules of the road, such as riding on the right side of the street and using the correct hand signals in a timely fashion.

Some other important steps to take for safety include:

  • Wear a brightly colored helmet that meets or exceeds the federal safety standards of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
  • If riding at night, as well as at dawn or dusk, equip your bike with headlights and taillights, and/or use reflectors or reflective tape on both your bicycle and your clothing.
  • Wear brightly colored clothes during the day and reflective clothing at night.
  • Have a working bell or horn to warn others of your presence.
  • Maintain your bike in good condition. Inspect your brakes regularly, and keep your tires properly inflated.
