Bicycle accidents are common in South Florida, and can happen in even the safest of cities like Coral Springs. In an effort to reduce bicycle accidents, the city of Coral Springs has promoted the Move Over bicycle safety campaign. The campaign pertains to the Florida law requiring motor vehicles to give bicyclists 3 feet of space while passing them on the road.
Broward, the county for Coral Springs, has also taken measures to reduce bicycle accidents. With the help of Florida International University and Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), the county has launched an application called BiKE Broward, where cyclists have the ability to map out their destinations according to the person’s best interest. The 5 types of routes offered are fast, short, have the least interaction with traffic, simple, and scenic. The bicyclists simply need to type in their start and end location, and the application will map out the route.
Further, Broward County has several parks with scenic bike trails for people interested in recreational biking. The parks in Broward County with bike trails are a safe alternative for those biking for recreational purposes and are listed below:
Additionally, there are 60 neighborhood parks in the city of Coral Springs for people of all ages to enjoy. Some of the parks have nature trails or jogging/walking trails that can be used for bike riding as well.Hiring a Coral Springs Bicycle Accident Lawyer
