When we tend to think of accidents, they usually involve a vehicle and another vehicle or even a pedestrian. However, Florida is also home to many bicyclists. Bicyclists using our streets and highways face extreme danger when they are involved in a crash with a vehicle. Bicycles, of course, are not made to withstand the impact of a crash with a vehicle and bicyclists are often seriously hurt in crashes as a result.
