Speeding Corvette Kills Bicyclist on Diplomat Parkway

April 1, 2015

A bicyclist has as much right to the road as a vehicle. Both are supposed to obey the rules of the road and follow the law. While accidents can happen, it’s hard to see how a Cape Coral, Florida man has any excuses when he killed a cyclist along a wide-open stretch of road.

Bicyclists Begin 3,000-Mile Ride to Raise Awareness About Bicycle Accidents

October 13, 2012

Em Baker and her friends Nick Navarro and Lauren Gardner are uncommonly motivated bicyclists. They recently began a 3,000-mile bike journey across the country to raise awareness about bicycle accidents and how riders and vehicles can share the road safely and responsibly. They are riding from San Francisco, Ca., to Orlando and have charted a very ambitious course, literally and figuratively. Beginning in San Francisco, the trio will ride south to San Diego. They will then follow the Southern Tier suggested by the Adventure Cycling Association through Phoenix, Austin, Baton Rouge and other coastal cities before arriving in the decidedly bicycle-unfriendly city of Orlando.

August 30, 2012

Last month, we wrote about the Florida Department of Transportation’s "Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow…Safety Doesn’t Happen by Accident" safety awareness campaign for drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists. As you know, several urban areas in our state are among the most dangerous in the country for pedestrians and bicyclists, and the DOT is working with safety advocates to make the new campaign reach as many people as possible. Elements of the program include increased public awareness of the scope of the problems, safer street design, additional bike paths and stepped-up police enforcement. However, organizers say that in order for the campaign to be successful, it will require everyone who uses Florida roadways to rethink how they use and share the road.
