Bicycle Hit-&-Runs in Florida

Palmetto, FL - Miami Man Hurt in Bicycle Crash on I-75 near Moccasin Wallow RdFor those who like cycling, Florida is one of the most popular states in the US.

In 2018, 121 fatalities involving bicyclists were reported. In 2018, fatalities among those aged 55 to 65 accounted for 40.5% of all deaths. In 38.5 percent of all fatal incidents, failure to yield the right of way played a role.
