Bike Accidents in Florida: Statistics and Fact

Bicycle Accidents

Florida’s weather is perfect for bicycling. In fact, the state’s climate is a major reason why Florida is one of the deadliest states for cyclists. Ultimately, this type of exposure increases an individual’s risk for a bicycle accident.

Other contributing factors to Florida’s alarming statistics of bicycle fatalities include the population’s growth rate and the lack of education statewide pertaining to bike and pedestrian safety.

According to data provided by the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there were a total of 7,077 bicycle crashes across the state in 2022, and 206 of those accidents were fatal.

Furthermore, according to an article published by Channel 8 News, Florida leads the United States in bicycle fatalities.

Causes of Bicycle Accidents in Florida

The majority of bicycle accidents occur due to a collision with an automobile. However, a defective bicycle model or one that has been repaired improperly can cause bicycle accidents as well. Most of the time, bicycle accidents with vehicles occur because the automobile driver doesn't see the bike rider. Bicycle Safe discusses 10 different types of collisions that cause bike accidents and how to avoid them.

Some of the most common scenarios include:

  • A car pulling out of a driveway or parking lot on the ride side of the road fails to see the cyclist and hits them
  • The driver of a vehicle opens his door just as a cyclist is coming, causing the cyclist to crash into the driver’s door
  • A bicyclist is crossing a street and just as they are reaching the other side, a driver fails to yield and makes a right-hand turn into the cyclist 

Bicycle accidents may result in terrible, life-changing injuries. The most common injuries endured are brain damage from not wearing a helmet, fractures, cuts, scrapes, and bruises.
