The Most Dangerous Roads For Cyclists In Sarasota County

Many Sarasota citizens are taking up cycling these days. Some individuals have gotten bicycles to commute back and forth to work. Who can blame them with gas prices what they are today? Luckily, Florida isn't as bad as some locations, but things could definitely be better too. According to AAA, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded in the Sunshine State on July 2 was $4.53. Meanwhile, higher grades were more expensive with mid-grade at $4.93 and premium at $5.26.

People ride bicycles for other reasons too. For example, various Sarasota residents hit trails at parks or natural forests on bikes for exercise. They get to take in the sights while shedding pounds. It's a win-win. Then, there are those who choose bikes to accommodate their green lifestyles. This mode of transportation helps them do their part to save Earth.

Florida Bicycle Accidents


It doesn't really matter why people are riding bicycles. The point is that they are, and there is nothing wrong with that. In fact, they should probably be applauded. However, being a bicyclist isn't always all that it sounds cracked up to be. That's because accidents can and do happen. And unfortunately, nobody is talking about a rider falling off and scraping their knee.

Instead, we mean the types of accidents that are caused by negligent drivers. Many motorists fail to yield the right of way, speed, and text while driving. Not to mention, driving under the influence and other reckless activities happen too. When such incidents take place, it is not uncommon for bicyclists to get severely injured. They're left with broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, burns, etc.

Those people are sometimes considered the lucky ones, though. That's because car vs. bicycle accidents also commonly claim the lives of riders. They die on scene, en route to hospitals, or after arriving at emergency rooms. So, if you're a cyclist in Florida, wouldn't you stop such events if you could? Of course, you would, what kind of question is that? The next section is revealing locations with more than one bicycle accident in 2020. Hence, read on to learn more. Then, steer clear of the places, and maybe, no harm will come to you while you're out and about on your bike.

More Than One Bicycle Crash Happened In These Locations In 2020


Obviously, one bicycle crash somewhere is too many. But, believe it or not, some locations around Sarasota County had more than one incident in 2020. For instance, at the intersection of Bee Ridge Rd and Beneva Rd, a total of three such accidents happened. Then, at Bee Ridge Rd and Sawyer Rd, two other events unfolded.

Other places that had at least two bicycle crashes each in that same year included:

Perhaps the two and three times bicycle accidents that occurred in these locations were just coincidences, or were they? Do you really want to leave anything to chance? Maybe there is something wrong with those sites and they pose increased crash risks to bicyclists. So, it'd be understandable if you wanted to find alternative routes around them.

At the very least, if you must go to the locations on a bike, be careful. Keep all of your senses heightened and on alert looking for dangers. Then, hopefully, that will be enough for you to keep a crash at bay. Were you seriously injured after getting hit by a negligent driver while riding your bike in Sarasota? If so, you might have the grounds to seek compensation for your damages. Contact Goldman, Babboni, Fernandez, Murphy & Walsh to learn more.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
