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.
Allstate Insurance Company recently issued its Best Drivers Report, which gauges the likelihood of auto accidents in a given area and the average number of years between accidents for drivers in that area. Allstate ranked Orlando 149th out of 193 metropolitan areas in their report, with first place being the best and safest place to drive in the country and 193rd place the worst and most dangerous. Our city’s poor ranking in the report will come as no surprise to James O. Cunningham and other Orlando personal injury lawyers. They have a great deal of experience representing people injured in accidents involving automobiles and see the effects of automobile accidents on a regular basis.
