Florida’s year round weather allows bicyclists and pedestrians to be out on the sidewalks, and streets virtually every day. The Florida Department of Transporation is trying to prevent pr aty least reduce the number of incidents leading to personal injuries / deaths to bicyclists and pedestrians in Florida. See Campaign Aims to Stop Bike and Pedestrian Personal Injuries and Deaths.
It is important for drivers to slow down in any area where there are bicycle riders or pedestrians. This is especially important when there are children riding bicycles or walking on or near the streets and roadways. It is also important for all drivers to follow and obey Florida traffic rules and regulations and otherwise drive with caution depending on weather conditions and traffic.
