We just got word that a cyclist was killed in a crash on the MacArthur Causeway involving two cyclists and a small Mazda station wagon. We don’t have all the details, but apparently the cyclists were heading east. The crash occurred near the Fisher Island ferry. We hope to provide more details shortly.
This is the 7th bicycle-car crash that I am aware of during the past week. When are our elected officials, the FDOT and, the County Public Works department going to take action to make our streets safer? When will we begin designing complete streets for all users and not just cars? How many more pedestrians and cyclists must die before they take action?
This is embarrassing. If things remain the same Florida will continue to lead the nation in bicycle and pedestrian deaths.
This could happen to anyone of us…
