Florida Pedestrian Accidents

  Pasco County, FL - Man Killed in Pedestrian Accident on SR 581 near Chancey RdUnfortunately, pedestrian collisions in Florida happen frequently. The Sunshine State is well known for its theme parks, beaches, and year-round warm climate. These attractions and more draw millions of people here each year to enjoy everything our beautiful state has to offer. However, with more people, sadly, comes more traffic accidents. Florida’s pedestrian danger index is one of the highest in the United States, according to recent information provided by Smart Growth America. 

States and metropolitan areas throughout the country were ranked on how life-threatening it is for people to walk or ride bikes instead of drive. This information was based on the number of people who have been hit by cars and killed in the area. Florida ranks number one out of the twenty states that were examined. In 2019, from January to June, almost 400 people were killed due to Florida pedestrian crashes, a percentage of them bicyclists. These statistics prove that Florida is one of the most dangerous states for pedestrian/bicycle travel.
